Integrate External APIs with Secure Tokens


Our platform extension platform is designed for seamless integration with external APIs, outside of the marketplace. It ensures authenticated access to external APIs using Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) headers and JSON Web Tokens (JWT). This facilitates third-party integrations, data visualization, analytics, and more with custom data sources.

Key Features

  1. Third-Party Integrations: Enables integration of third-party applications or services into the existing platform extension, enabling a range of integrations like complex analytics dashboards and new user interface workflows.

  2. Security and Data Control: Uses CORS headers and JWT for secure API communication and data protection.

How it works

  1. In your platform extension, you use our special function that will fetch the JWT token from the marketplace and add it to your request to your API.
  2. In your API you will need to validate the token to ensure that the request is coming from the marketplace.
