AEM Headless - Service Credentials by Adobe Docs

Abstract

Integrations with AEM as a Cloud Service must be able to securely authenticate to AEM. AEM’s Developer Console grants access to Service Credentials, which are used to facilitate external applications, systems and services to programmatically interact with AEM Author or Publish services over HTTP.

Service Credentials may appear similar Local Development Access Tokens but are different in a few key ways:
1. Service Credentials are not access tokens, rather they are credentials that are used to obtain access tokens.
2. Service Credentials are more permanent (expire every 365 days), and do not change unless revoked, whereas Local Development Access Tokens expire daily.
3. Service Credentials for an AEM as a Cloud Service environment map to a single AEM technical account user, whereas Local Development Access Tokens authenticate as the AEM user who generated the access token.

Both Service Credentials and the access tokens they generate, as well as Local Development Access Tokens should be kept secret, as all three can be used to obtain access to their respective AEM as a Cloud Service environments
