Hi, we have been using the Adobe Analytics v1.4 apis for a few years to integrate with Adobe Analytics as a 3rd party.

We have been using the WSSE header to authenticate and getting the user's the API Key with a call to "Company.GetLoginKey".

This call no longer works after the user migrates to the cloud or has a new cloud account.

I'm trying to understand what the best solution is short term and long term.

I noticed I can get the users api Key from the "Web Services Credential" section if I am an admin. Using this key seems to work. Is this an acceptable short term solution?

Longer term I understand that the customer needs to create an integration to Adobe Analytics api. It seems a "Service Account" is the best approach, but does not seem to work. I found this post that says it is currently not supported. Analytics API

Will it be supported in the future?

Are we forced to use OAuth at this point to call 1.4 apis?

Thanks

Maybe API 2.0 is not yet an option, since permission managment might not work as expected.

But you can setup everything with API 1.4 and Oauth2. except of authentification you don't need to change your calls to get data out.

but as Gigazelle​ said, in the long term go for API 2.0

Is using the v2.0 API's an option? They were just released last month.

Thanks For Sharing though, I was referring to the same  post , the question I had was when creating application ID and organization in using oauth Service account, public key should be generated using the Application Secret key or Adobe will provide it?
