Roam uses an API Key based authentication passed using a custom headerApi-Keyfor the APIs taking into consideration the safety of your API secret keys. We provide APIs on a per-project basis so that the projects are independent of each other's APIs.
Once your application is integrated with the Roam SDK, an account for each user will be created using your app. Information about these users can be tracked through Roam APIs.
Here are the API endpoints available to interact with the user profile data:
