Overview of the Profile page on the BioData Catalyst Powered by Gen3

Profile Page

The Profile page contains two sections: API keys and Project access.

API key(s)

Click Download json to save the credential file to your local machine. After completion, a new entry will appear in the API key(s) section of the Profile page. It will display the API key key_id and the expiration date (one month after the key creation). The user should delete the key after it has expired. If for any reason a user feels that their API key has been compromised, the key should be deleted before subsequently creating a new one.
