I'm helping out a friend and need API access to his account. However, he doesn't want (rightly so) to give me access to his main account. Can he give me API access? I have an SFTP account, but that's not working when I try to log in via the API.

No, sorry - at the present time, use of the API requires the credentials for the main user's control panel account.

@seanf, you really recommend customers give out their full account info to 3rd party developers? Seems a security nightmare.

I'm not recommending that at all. I'm just letting you know how the system works at the present time.
