An account represents an object that encompasses details to connect to an endpoint. Accounts play a crucial role in integrating applications. Any Snap that communicates with an external endpoint needs an authenticated account to access the resources on the endpoint. For example, a MySQL Snap requires authenticated access to a MySQL database. In SnapLogic, you create an Account to store credentials and any other information necessary to connect, such as a URL, hostname, and port number.
