The API Credentials function allows you as a 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 management platform. Here’s how to do that.

How to use API Credentials

Log in to your Martide account and click on your profile picture in the top right corner. Choose Settings from the drop down menu and then API Credentials:

Here you can:

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

  • Copy the token by clicking the blue Copy Access Token button.

If the token has been successfully copied you will see a pop-up box that looks like this:

You can then copy and paste the token and give it to your developer so they can get all of your crewing systems working in sync.
