I want to build an integration that uses external software. For this, I need to askthe user for a pass and a username. Where should I store this data? I do not want to save it inside a personal database due to security reasons

You will need to store this in some secure external system. It sounds like you are building a custom integration, so it is up to your software code to securely store api credentials.

Hey @catalinsendsms ,

does the external software store username and password to authenticate? 

@Oscar1 , @lynton  any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Dennis
