Create a New User

Before you begin integration, your ChMS administrator must create a unique administrator login. This login gives Go Method permission to request changes from your ChMS. Synchronization activity is also accredited to this login in your change log or audit record. This must be a new user login.

  • You must be a Go Method admin to do this.
  • You must be a ChMS system admin to do this.

This administrative user you create in these steps is also referred to as an API User.
