A note about Integrator Keys

An Integrator Key uniquely identifies your API application to DocuSign. It is not tied to your username/login; you can use any username/password combination in concert with your Integrator Key in order to make requests on behalf of another DocuSign user. Any API requests you make will use the Integrator's Key. To learn more about Integrator Keys and how to use them in an API application, read the Getting and Using Your Integrator's Key blog post.
