What is an App?
- Application information can be changed at any time.
- A developer can register up to 5 apps.
- App ID and application_secret are issued separately for each app. (i.e. app A can only use its App ID and application_secret)
- App ID and application_secret can be used with multiple APIs
- Access control is applied to each app individually.
- In contrast to app ID and application_secret, only one Affiliate ID is issued per developer. Please use that Affiliate ID across all registered apps.
Merits of registered Apps
Developers will be able to use the API with OAuth 2.0 functionality (If the App is not registered, this functionality will not be available)
