Registering an User

When registering with Mashery you'll be asked for the following fields:

Registering an Application

In order to use APIs you need to create one or more applications. Here is a summary of the Application form fields:

Field Name Use
Name of your Application This is used to help you recognize your applications. If you implement an OAuth login flow, this is the name that will be displayed to the user when we ask permission to log them in.
Website This is for the website that is associated with your application (if there is one). If you implement an OAuth login flow, this is the url displayed to the user when we ask permission to log them in.
Describe This is just a text description for what you are going to do with the key. This is just for our internal use.
Register Callback Url This is only used for OAuth flows. If you implement an OAuth login flow, the redirect url that you pass during the flow must mach this url. It must be SSL.
Which Franchises This is only used internally by us to help measure API usage.
