Contrast TeamServer API Credentials

To access the TeamServer API, you'll first need access to TeamServer - either SAAS (https://app.contrastsecurity.com/Contrast/login.html) or an on-premises installation of TeamServer.

To begin using the Contrast API you will need to retrieve your API-Key from the server. To do this, you will need to log in to your TeamServer account and have the application e-mail you a generated API-Key.

  1. Log in to TeamServer
  2. Click the down arrow next to your login name in the page header
  3. Click on API Key
  4. Click either Email me the current "API Key" or "Rotate the key and email me a new key"

The TeamServer client requires the TeamServer URL, account username, service key, API key and TeamServer URL.
