Some Veracode products require that you provide your Veracode API credentials using a Veracode API credentials file.
You can create the Veracode API credentials file on Windows, macOS, Linux, or UNIX. You add the file to a specific directory on the system on which you run APIs or integrations. The integration, API wrapper, or command-line tool reads the file from this directory to access your credentials.
For macOS, Linux, and UNIX, you can alternately store your credentials as environment variables. You can use either the Veracode API credentials file or environment variables, but not both.
