Question: What access level is needed for a user who wants to create an API in Workfront


Level 2


I have a third party contractor who would like to create an API in Workfront. This API would capture Project name, documents, etc into their system. This is a 3rd party contractor performing translation requests on documents for us as their client.  


I'm looking to verify that in order to create an API, I would need to give this person System Administrator access? Is my thinking correct? This user is not currently set up in Workfront, I want to give them the corrects Access/Permission level to perform API


Thanks in advance

They do not need system administrator access. If all they are doing is polling for data, then they just need a basic user account that would be able to see that data normally.
