Account migration to RapidAPI
- Getting started
- Account migration to RapidAPI
Earlier this year, we announced that Paw was joining forces with RapidAPI
to create the best tools for API builders and consumers.
We want to offer the best experience for API creation, design & specification, testing, mocking, and discovery.
As part of this effort, we are merging the two platforms.
The first step of that has been migrating user accounts from Paw to RapidAPI on September 1st, 2021.
You’ll be able to continue to use Paw like before; nothing changes on the Mac application.
Can I still use the Paw application?
Absolutely. Nothing changes on that side. Nothing changes for Paw on Mac (besides the fact that you’ll login via RapidAPI.com). Additionally, the Windows, Linux and Web versions of Paw will not be affected either.
Will I lose my data?
No. Your data remains on Paw servers and will be accessible on Paw after you login through RapidAPI.
Will I lose my Paw license?
Like your data, your Paw license won’t be affected. All your data, licenses, user information remain on Paw and will be accessible after login.
Will that affect our Paw for Teams subscription?
It won’t affect your subscription. After you login, you’ll be able to access your team account and your subscription, billing information, and past invoices will be accessible.
How will this affect our team?
Users from your team will be also migrated to RapidAPI. The team configuration and billing will stay on Paw for the time being, but we’ll migrate that to RapidAPI later this year so your team can access all our products at once.
I am using login with Google or GitHub (SSO), how can I login?
On RapidAPI.com you’ll also be able to login through Google or GitHub. Your account will be the same after you login.
I have two factor authentication (2FA) on Paw, has this been migrated to RapidAPI?
If you had already a RapidAPI account, we did not migrate your two factor configuration to RapidAPI and you should login on RapidAPI with your existing RapidAPI credentials.
If you did not have a RapidAPI account, your Paw credentials, including two factor settings have been migrated, and you should login on RapidAPI with your Paw credentials.
I am using login with Google or GitHub (SSO) and I also had two factor authentication?
You’ll continue to login with Google or GitHub (SSO) on RapidAPI. You won’t need to use two factor authentication as we know that your account has been already secured by the 3rd party platform (Google or GitHub).
I already have a RapidAPI account, how will this work?
If you have a RapidAPI account with the same email address as your Paw account, these accounts have been merged. You should use your RapidAPI.com credentials instead of your Paw credentials. Then, all data on Paw will be the same as you had before.
Will you deprecate the Mac application in favor of an Web/Electron app?
No. It may be a big bet, but native apps are part of our DNA. We think we can deliver a greater experience on Mac (were most developers work) if we have a native application. We’ll develop Web/Electron applications for the web and other operating systems.
What does this mean for the future of Paw?
Paw is an application that we love and the entire RapidAPI team is using it on a daily basis to test both internal APIs and those we have on our API Hub. We’ll continue developing Paw by adding new features (OpenID auth, gRPC, AsyncAPIs, are on the roadmap) and always improving the user experience and performance. In parallel, we’re developing new API tools (for automated testing, publishing, API specification design) which we’ll be closely integrating with Paw in the future. Our vision is to continue offering the best API client and for it to become part of a larger suite of tools for API development.
Was my data secure in the transition?
We value our users personal data and security above all else. We have made sure to keep data secure and private during the transition. To that end, we have made sure all data transition was automated and data was not touched by humans. Sensitive information like password is hashed in our system, so there is no opportunity for leakage. Payment and credit card information is secured by Stripe and not stored on our servers.
I still have a problem
Please contact our support. We’ll be happy to help you out quickly. Please mention the email address that you’re using Paw with so we can easily find your account.
