The API Credentials function allows your shipping company to communicate with developers by giving them access to your existing crewing systems and recruitment software. This allows those systems to then work flawlessly with Martide’s maritime recruitment and crew planning platform. Here’s how to do that.

How to use API Credentials

Log in to your Martide account and click on Settings in the drop down menu under your profile picture and then on API Credentials:

Here you can:

  • Create an API access token by clicking the blue Generate API token button - it will appear in the box above as a series of dots:

  • Copy the token to send to your developer by clicking the blue Copy token button.
  • Enter and submit your password to create a C Teleport API key so you can sync with C Teleport and request flight ticket information for your seafarers when using the Crew Change function.

Note: You can have multiple API keys and an API key can have specific permissions.
