Using Profiles

A Profile allows you to save commonly used API authentication information and Choreo inputs. That saved information can be used across Choreos from the Library and the SDK. You can create a Profile for any API in the Choreo Library.

How Profiles help

  • They live separately from your code. No more embedding passwords and other static Choreo inputs in your apps.
  • You can update Choreo inputs without updating your code. Simply change the Profile on Temboo and your code will use the new inputs.
  • Save RAM on resource-constrained devices by saving Choreo inputs remotely. 
  • They allow you to configure Choreo input more simply from the Library or the SDK
  • Manage API accounts from one location, your Account page, where you can see and update all your links to other APIs at a glance 

Create a Profile 

  1. Log in to Temboo.
  2. Open the Choreo for which you'd like to create a Profile. 
  3. Enter some inputs and click Save Profile
  4. Name your inputs and Save. Your newly created Profile will appear in the right column, ready for you to use in the Choreo. 

Run a Choreo with a Profile

Once you've created a Profile, you can run a Choreo with it. 

  1. Select the Choreo you'd like to run. 
  2.  You'll see your saved Profiles in the right-hand column. Select the Profile you want to use, click "Use", and the Choreo input fields will be populated. 

  3. If you're using an SDK, copy and paste the auto-generated code into your own code.  

Editing and Deleting Profiles

In the right column, click the Profiles you'd like to edit and click Edit

Profiles in your Account

You can also manage Profiles from your Account page. All of your Profiles are listed in the Profiles section.
