Read application credential

You can use the Read Application Credential filter to get information from the client registry about an application credential.

This filter stores the information in a message attribute (for example, apimgmt.appcredential). You can use this filter within an alert handling policy (or any other policy) to get information about an application credential easily.

General settings

Enter an appropriate name for the filter.

Credential Type:

The type of application credential to read. Select one of the following values:

  • API Key

Credential ID selector:

Enter a selector expression with the name of the message attribute that contains the application credential ID (for example, ${}). The value of the selector is expanded at runtime.

Name of attribute to set:
