Executing Operations Using Master Key Authorization

Executing Operations Using Master Key Authorization

The master key is typically used for administrative purposes such as resetting user passwords and changing permissions. Some Telerik Platform operations can only be executed using the master key.

To execute one or more operations against Telerik Platform using master key authorization, you need to initialize an Everlive instance specifying your master key instead of the Bearer token:

EverliveAppSettings appSettings = new EverliveAppSettings() { ApiKey = "your-app-id", UseHttps = true };
EverliveApp app = new EverliveApp(appSettings);

//set to your actual master key
var masterKey = "your-master-key";
app.AccessToken = new AccessToken(masterKey, "MasterKey");

All operations that come after setting the master key will use it while the Everlive instance exists.
