The Transcend Guide to Privacy

Welcome to the Transcend. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Transcend as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Authentication

All Transcend APIs require authentication. Transcend authenticates using API keys.

Getting your API key

Transcend has two types of keys

1. Data silo API keys

These keys are used to perform operations for a specific data silo. For example, if you have connected your "User Accounts" database/server, it will have its own API key.

You can find this key in the Transcend console by going to the Data Map tab and selecting the data silo you want to operate on.

2. Organization API keys

Organization API keys are used to perform any other operations that are not on a specific data silo. For example, creating a new data subject request would use an organization API key.

You can find this key in the Transcend console by going to Settings → Developer.

The Authorization Header

Every request must include a header: Authorization with the value of your API key.

Authorization: 

HTTPS only

All requests must be made over HTTPS. Requests not made over HTTPS or that are missing an API key will be rejected.
