Prerequisites for using Next Project API

This page will help you get started with Next Project API. You'll be up and running in a jiffy!

Before you can start interacting with Next you need to register as an integrator with Next and set up authorization in the Next databases that you will interact with.

Register as a NEXT integrator

Before you can start developing integrations against the Next Project API you need to register as an integrator. Please contact us so that we can help you in this process. As a result of your registration, you will receive a client id and a client secret. These credentials are needed you need to log in to a new Next database.

Create one time key in the Next Project database

To create an access token that your integration can use you first need to create a one time key in Next Project.

The user that the API will act as should then log in to Next and generate a one-time API key. You should have gotten log in credentials for this Next Project user when setting up the integration for the customer. This can be done under the Administration panel in Next.

  1. Log in to Next Project (where XXXXXX is the customer number in Next Project)
  2. Open the administration panel (The Admin button on the very top right)
  3. Select the Integrations tab
  4. Then select the API keys tab
  5. Press the '+'-button to create a new key and give it a name
  6. When the one time key has been used to create an access token it is consumed and cannot be used again, indicated by the "Used" checkbox.

The API will have access to everything that this user has access to, and all interaction with Next through the API will be recorded in Next as being done by this user. The user needs to have the administrative right One Time API Key to be able to generate an API key.
