What are connections?

Connections play a crucial role in the ApprovalMax Public API as they enable applications to interact with data stored in ApprovalMax. These connections are established through an authorisation flow, generating a token that grants access to the system on behalf of the user. Once the connection is established, the application can utilise the generated token to make authorised API requests.

However, it's important to note that when an Account Owner or Account Manager disconnects a connection, it deactivates the associated access token. This means that the token can no longer be used to make API requests unless the connection is re-enabled.

Disabling a connection ensures that access to the data through the ApprovalMax Public API is temporarily suspended. To resume API requests, a user with appropriate privileges can enable the connection and thus reactivate the associated access token.
