  2. Click "Settings"


  3. Click the "API" tab and then the "Add new Global API Key"


  4. Choose the appropriate key type, name the key and click "Create"


  5. Copy the API Key

Lastly, create a Thinkst Canary credential in Tines

  1. Login to your Tines tenant

  2. Navigate to the team that will be using the API and click "Credentials"

  3. Click "+ New Credential" and select "Text"

  4. Input the values for the Thinkst Canary credential

    1. Name: Thinkst Canary

    2. Description: Optional

    3. Value: Your API key

  5. Optional

    1. Domains: Ensure this credential can only be used when making HTTP requests to specific domains.
