Console to manage API credentials
Managing API credentials, redirect URIs etc is cumbersome work for both ORCid Support in making changes and integrators and software developers requesting for changes. Google-style console to manage API credentials and properties associated to them would ease workflows for both parties.
Sure, Google has a lot of functionalities added, but a simple list of API IDs for each consortium member and management interface to update API redirect URIs would be a good start.
Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry. We’re glad to hear that this is something that you’d like to see, as it’s something that we’d like to see too!
Currently individual ORCID record holders can manage their ORCID Public API credentials by clicking Development Tools on the registry navigation (direct link: https://orcid.org/developer-tools).
We have as goal to allow members to do the same on with the Member API credentials. You can keep a track of progress on this by following our public Trello boards: https://trello.com/orcid2

Oh, nice! And yes, it was the member and sandbox API that I was referring to. Thank you for the clarification.
