User Access

Overview

As we move into a more privacy conscious decade, we have gone back over our API data access policies and decided that users need to grant permission for sites to use their playlists and cuesheets. Those could have sensitive data in them, and the decision to use it shouldn’t be left to the sites or us.

Cuesheet Access

The Cuesheet API is not used heavily, but to not disrupt any current users, we’ll be leaving its access open until March 2nd, 2020. If you are using the Cuesheet API, please make sure the relevant users update their settings before that date.

Updating Access Settings

To access user data, you’ll need two things:

  • An API Token with the userdata permission
  • A user with Allow Admins to Manage Your Data turned on.

To change this setting, have your users visit their Dashboard > Account Settings page and look for this:
