Creating a new user for API access


Any Readysell API call requires the username and password for a Readysell user with the "CanExecuteWebService" permission enabled. It is recommended that a separate user account is created for each system and/or entity that will be interacting with Readysell via an API. This ensures that you can easily revoke API access without adverse affects and that changes made via the API can be correctly audited.
