Add as many relevant API Endpoints as needed for the Snippet.
Review the included content, especially the database table and records. When a Snippet uses a database request, the associate database tables will be included. You may optionally include records along with the Snippet. Be very careful not to share sensitive information.
Optionally include data records to the Snippet.
Once the Snippet is created, it will automatically be published for your clients.

Managing the Private Marketplace

The Private Marketplace has two views from your Agency instance: Created Within Your Agency and Published Within Your Agency.
Created Within Your Agency shows all the Private Snippets that have been created within your Private Marketplace.

Secure Share

Secure Share enables you to require a security token for the Snippet to be viewed externally.
Each token is only valid for a single installation. If you are going to share with multiple individuals, make sure to generate a unique link for each individual.
In order to securely share a Snippet, navigate to the Private Marketplace and select a Snippet from the Created Within Your Agency tab.
In the top right corner, select Secure Share.

Select Generate to generate a security token.

Once generated, a one-time use link will be generated with a unique security token. This link is good for a one-time use. You can copy it and send it securely for someone to use it once.
A one-time use link will be generated to share.
The landing page for a Secure Share and installation will be the same as a regular Snippet.
