Workast uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Workast account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Workast APIs in both code and no-code steps.

To retrieve your API key:

  1. Navigate to your Workast account and sign in
  2. In Chrome you need to open the Developers tools (View -> Developer -> Developer tools)
  3. Go to the Application tab
  4. Navigate to cookies and you will find a cookie called token
  5. Remember to URL decode the token before you use it with a tool like https://www.urldecoder.org/
