Access Keys Api Questions
What is a Master Key (X-Master-Key)
Master Key or (X-Master-Key) is a default key generated on creating your account. Using the Master Key, you could access any API endpoint on JSONBin.io. You cannot Delete or modify the access this API key has.Access Keys Api
What is an Access Key (X-Access-Key)
Access Keys feature is added recently. Unlike Master Key, you can customize access to specific APIs for each of these keys. For eg: You can create a key and grant access for Reading the Bins only. You will not be able to carry any other operation other than Reading the Bins with that Key. As of now, we are only allowing this key to be configured for reading the bins, we will later add more API endpoints, accesses of which can be configurable with the Access Keys feature.Access Keys Api
What is the difference between Master Key (X-Master-Key) & Access Key(X-Access-Key)
Master Key (X-Master-Key) is an API key generated by JSONBin.io which has access to each and every API endpoint. Access Key on the other hand can be generated by the user where users can assign specific access to the API endpoints. For eg: User can decide if a generated key has access to Create and Read the Bins but the key cannot be used to Delete or Update the Bins.Access Keys Api

When I could set permissions for each of the API endpoint?
As of now, we have launched this feature as Beta and hence, only thing you could use the Access Key is to Read the Bins. In coming weeks, we will extend this support for other API endpoints too.Access Keys Api
