Kareo PM API Customer Key

Before you can connect Kareo to a third-party app, you'll need to locate your Customer Key. As an added security measure, Kareo Web Services API requires the use of a Customer Key (in addition to your login and password) to access your data.  A Customer Key is an account-specific identifier that is the same for all users on the account. The Key never changes or expires, and it can be accessed from within Kareo PM at any time.  

Note that the Customer Key is only required when pairing Kareo Practice Management with a partner EHR. It's not needed for Kareo EHR.
