The Wistia API follows a common pattern of requiring two different keys to authenticate your app.

  • Client ID: The Client ID (also referred to as the API Key in some contexts) is essentially the public identifier for your app. Think of it like the name tag your app wears when it talks to Wistia. In this context, it's not to be confused with your secret access token: In fact, the Client ID doesn't need to be kept secret.

  • Client Secret: The Client Secret Key, on the other hand, is like a password. It's used to secure communication between your app and Wistia's servers. Exposure of the Secret Key can lead to security risks, unlike the App ID.

FAQ: Wistia plugin

What should I do if I accidentally expose my Client ID?

The Client ID is a public identifier, and does not need to be replaced if it's exposed.

What should I do if I accidentally expose my secret key?

The secret key should be kept securely private, as exposure can lead to security risks. We strongly recommend revoking the exposed key and creating a new one immediately. Remember to deploy the changes in your app to Live after replacing the secret key.
