The API tab (direct link) is a section under the Settings tab on the Options page. It presents user credentials, listing two values (the User ID and the API Token) and displaying a QR Code which can quickly load the user credentials into some applications.
User ID (UUID) Edit
The User ID (or UUID for Unique User ID) is a complex hexadecimal number that HabitRPG automatically generates when someone joins, similar to a username.
You'll need it to:
- Join a party or private guild
- Request administrative help with your account
- Contribute to HabitRPG
- Submit a bug
- Connect with 3rd party apps such as the mobile app.
To find your User ID, go to Settings → API (direct link).To find someone else's User ID, click on that person's name in Tavern Talk or any other HabitRPG chat room. It will be displayed on their profile. If you are already in a party with them, you can view their profile from your party page - party members names are listed in the Members box.
API Token Edit
The API token is a unique security code given to you along with your User ID. It is similar to a password so it is essential that you keep this token private and that you never share this token with any untrustworthy applications nor people!
To find your API Token, go to Settings → API (direct link).
QR Code Edit
The QR code may help a user set up their account on the mobile HabitRPG app (does not work with the official Android app). Since it contains your API Token, do not share the QR code with any untrustworthy applications or people.
