  6. Enter the API key into the Configuration screen, along with the date you've set the API key to expire, and press Save.

  7. Currently, each user of the Admin Automation app will need their own API Key. This is to ensure that only authorised users are able to create and edit the automations.

You're now all setup and ready to create your first Admin Automation rule!

All API keys are encrypted and stored in AWS Secrets Manager and are only accessible via the Atlassian Admin Automation app. This aids in compliance with regulatory requirements that mandate key rotation and access logging. It’s a robust solution for modern cloud-native applications where managing sensitive information securely is critical.
