Currently to create a new user, requires using the REST API. To create one see this article.
Each Fathom Account has an primary API key associated with it. If it has not been provided to you please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. To create an new independant API key unassociated with your account see this article.
Many of the management API requires a Role ID as input. The Role ID is linked to a permission policy document. This permission policy document defines the read/write access to different venues and API endpoints. Currently, a default policy is created when a new organization is created. In a future release of Fathom Control a permission policy editor will be made available to edit and create additional roles and policies.
Use the GetAllRoles API which will display all the roles and organizations that you belong to. Generally you will only belong to one. If you belong to more then one, then use the GetOrganization API to get details of each organization.
Use the GetAllVenues API to retrieve details of all the venues you have under your organization. The data.attributes.name provides the venue name, and the data.id field is the venue ID.
