Leaf User Overview
For Leaf to be able to access, process and return standardized files from providers, you first need to create a ‘Leaf User’, which you’ll later connect to your customers’ preferred data provider(s).
What is a Leaf user?
- A Leaf User provides a way to keep your customers' data organized under your API owner. You'll attach 3rd party credentials to these entities.
- A Leaf User is equivalent to a customer/grower account.
- The same Leaf User/grower can integrate with multiple providers via a user-authentication process for each provider.
