Create an API user for Classic Calabrio ONE

If you plan to use Calabrio ONE APIs for third-party integrations, Calabrio recommends that you create an API user account. You configure an API user the same as a system administrator, but the purpose of this user is to enable third-party applications to authenticate with Calabrio ONE.

NOTE   To create this user, you must have the default system administrator role or a role with equivalent permissions. This role consumes one System Administrator license.

For more information on authorizing and authenticating a user with Calabrio ONE, see Authorize API in the API Reference Guide.
