Alias Id is a new way to handle access without the need to save Parakey Access ID in your database. Instead, you can use your own ID and configure this in Parakey and we will handle the mapping between your ID and the Parakey Access ID.
Create or update Alias Id on a key (Access)
Alias Id on a key (Access) should represent a unique identifier in your system, for example, a room id.
- When creating a new key or find the key you want to update and press "Change settings".
- From the settings screen make sure "Allow API integration" is active
- Press "+ Show optional settings" to view all Key settings.
- Enter an alias Id
Use Alias Id on an AccessKey
You can also assign each AccessKey with an alias Id. This is different from the Alias Id on a key (Access) and should be used to identify either a user (for example user id in your system) or it could be a unique identifier for a group of user (for example a booking id). This makes it possible to delete all AccessKeys for a user using your user id, or removing all AccessKeys for booking by using the booking Id.
