Access for ApplicationsPermanent link for this heading

The access to the Fabasoft Cloud with external applications such as CMIS, CalDAV, WebDAV, RSS or web services has to be protected with an own generated password. The password has a validity period and can be renewed and revoked.

To generate passwords for applications, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the account menu (your user name) and click “Access for Applications“.
  2. In the Passwords for Applications field, click “New”.

  • If a generated password runs out shortly or has already run out an e-mail is sent to your login e-mail address.
  • To extend passwords, select the menu entry “Renew all”. The passwords will be extended by the entered validity period. You can also extend a single password by editing the entry.
  • If you want to change a generated password, you have to revoke it and generate a new one.
