Create an API Only User Role

If you want to integrate with Marketo via the REST API, the best practice is to assign a user the API Only role and then create a custom service for use with ReST API. Here’s how to create the API only user role.


Admin Permissions Required

  1. From My Marketo, click Admin.

  2. Under Security, click Users & Roles.

  3. Click the Roles tab and then New Role.

  4. Enter a Role Name, select the API access Permissions you want to give, and click Create.


It’s always a good idea to only grant the minimum permissions required.
