Use synthetic monitoring secure credentials APIs

With the synthetic monitoring REST API, you can make API calls to change or retrieve secure credentials data. This document explains the API requirements and contains API curl command examples.

For general guidelines for setting secure credentials and setting them in the UI, see Secure credentials.

Important

You can now manage your secure credentials with our NerdGraph API.

Requirements and rules

For general rules about this feature, see the secure credentials requirements.

API requirements and rules include:

  • See general synthetic monitoring REST API requirements.
  • An account's rate of requests is limited to three requests per second. Requests that exceed this threshold will return a 429 response code.
  • A key's value cannot be accessed via the API; an unauthorized user would not have access to the secure key values.
