5. Enter the API key for the app you would like to enable, and select an access level. This determines which users the app has control over. It is important to select the access level for an application carefully. This option determines which sets of users an application may access and modify within your enterprise. Currently the only option available is "Only users of this app," which limits access to only the App Users created and managed by this application.
