Why is it safe to enter a password to connect to Openpath?

Password is never stored or logged

It's never a good idea to share a password with any site other than the one that authenticates the password. That's why OAuth was created.

However, Camio has made it safe to enter your Openpath email and password as a convenience to avoid having to copy/paste all the Outbound Subscriptions and Hook Actions.

  1. the password is never stored or logged by Camio.
  2. the password is sent to Openpath using TLS 1.2 encryption.

Administrator role for Outbound Webhooks

The creation of Outbound Webhooks requires your Openpath Administrator's credentials at:

https://camio.com/settings/integrations/openpath/webhooks

Read-only role for lookups

The lookup of user names, email, and door descriptions requires only Read-Only role access at:

https://camio.com/settings/integrations/openpath

If you're technically oriented and prefer not to enter a password, then you can instead copy and paste the token in the response from this curl command:

curl --request POST \
--url https://api.openpath.com/auth/login \
--header 'accept: application/json' \
--header 'content-type: application/json' \
-d '{"email":"readonlyemail@yourdomain.com", "password":"YOURPASSWORD"}'
