Manage and create API keys, Settings and Scoring

The portal has a redesigned area for managing API keys, changing scoring and settings. In the Account menu for Admins is a new option of API Keys Setting and Scoring. From there Admins can create, regenerate, and name keys. Each key also has unique Settings and a Scoring Profile.

Each account has one primary API Key (identified with key icon). All keys support vetting (api.e-hawk.net) and feed (feed-api.e-hawk.net: Tag, Alert, Activity, Report) API calls.

Keys with access to the Community API are identified with a icon and must be used for adding/managing Community data.

Each key has separate data, reporting, tags, alerts, fingerprints, activity tracking, settings, scoring profile and is listed by name in the View select menu to filter portal data. Use icons to copy Primary key settings and/or scoring to other keys.

The screens-hot below shows the new features and how to manage API keys.

We also added two API calls for scoring profile reports for an API key:
https://feed-api.e-hawk.net/APIKEY/score/profile/?format=csv returns a .CSV file
https://feed-api.e-hawk.net/APIKEY/score/profile/ returns a JSON


Updated Scoring and Setting Areas

The Scoring Profile area has been updated to hopefully make setting custom scoring and tracking easier. We have added a download link to get your scoring details in a .csv file. Click on the Area tabs and adjust scoring. No more labels, just numbers to adjust scoring.

New tests in Email, Activity Unique, IP

In addition to improving our blacklists and pattern recognition engine, we added the following tests:
  • IP Invalid returns when an invalid IP is sent, default score is -10
  • Activity Unique These hit when a unique items, such as email, has multiple items, such as phones. Each area has hits from 2 to 5+ repeats for scoring different levels. Default scoring for all hits is -1. Adjust based on your business needs. New tests include:
    • Email from X Lead Sources - when an email has multiple lead sources
    • Email from X Campaigns - when an email has multiple campaigns
    • Username links to X Emails - when a username has multiple emails
    • Email links to X Usernames - when an Email has multiple usernames
    • Username links to X Phones - when a username has multiple phones
    • Phone links to X Usernames - when a phone has multiple usernames
    You will also see placeholders for ip to username, ip to phone, and ip to email. These tests will be activated soon.

    Updated Settings

    In the settings area, per API key, you can now set set timeout=>false for all API calls. This is recommended if sending email, domain, or phone as it adds many tests to the service. The system also supports adding multiple emails to Alerts. And finally, we have removed the requirement for an IP to process API calls. The API requires a minimum of IP, Email, OR Domain to run, so you could just send an email address. Please contact support if you would like
