Settings

Manage your Application and Bearer's credentials

General

An application's settings can be accessed from the Settings link in the dashboard navigation. The application settings page allows you to update the name of an application and delete the application.

Developer Keys

Each application in Bearer uses a unique key. Use the application switcher to select the desired application, then navigate to the Settings screen to view your Secret Key.

Your Bearer App Key is used to authenticate your application with Bearer when setting up the Bearer Agent. The App key is intended to used from the server-side only.

Your App Key must not be shared with anyone and never be exposed.

Environments

The Bearer Agent detects the environment based on your configuration. You can view a list of all detected environments, adjust their color, and enable or disable their logging here. If you'd like to disable the auto-detection of new environments, toggle the detection as shown below.

Each environment can be further configured by selecting the Settings link. Here you can choose how the environment, and it's agent, will interact with the dashboard. Here you can toggle:

  • The active status of the environment.

  • Whether all newly detected APIs are active by default.

  • Whether to log payloads of all newly detected APIs by default.

  • If you'd like notifications when agents are down or outdated.

New environment names can be configured when setting up the agent. See the configuration settings for each agent for details on setting the environment name.

Tags

Tags are a great way to group APIs within your application. You can view an overview of all tags, their affected APIs, and remove tags from this section.

Notifications

The notifications tab allows you to configure application-wide settings for a variety of notification types. Here you can set up

These notification types allow you to specify differing levels of control over anomalies and remediations within your application. To learn more about the webhook notification's payload, see our specification:

Agents

The Agents tab gives you insight into all the agents linked to the current application. You can see their versions, IP addresses, and status.
