Manage Credentials with 1001fx
Some third-party services accessible through 1001fx (such as YouTube) require you to provide login information in order for our servers to connect to them.
Credentials for APIs like Stripe, YouTube, or other SaaS (Software as a Service) platforms are essentially a set of unique keys or tokens that allow you to access and interact with the services provided by these platforms. Think of them as a digital key that grants you access to a locked door, where the locked door represents the specific service you want to interact with.
You can add and manage your credentials in the Dashboard . Depending on the service, you may need to authenticate with the 3rd party service.
