How to Connect the ShareSecure API Key to AIM

ShareSecure for Salesforce requires a unique, self-generated API key for each Admin user. The ShareSecure API key is the token that will connect AIM to the correct ShareSecure portal.

  1. Login to ShareSecure.
  2. Click on your username in the top right-hand corner. Select “My Account” from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click on ‘Security Settings’
