Credentials provide secure access to the integrated app that you use in a MESA workflow. Your Claude credential securely links your workflows with your Anthropic account.

When you're setting up your first workflow with Claude, you'll need to create an Anthropic API Key.

To find your Anthropic API Key, go to: Click the Create Key button and name your key (e.g. MESA).

Click the Copy Key from the pop-up that appears. Once you obtain your API key, you can paste the API key into your workflow credential's API Key field.

Afterward, you can re-use the newly created credential and select it for your future workflows!


Following Anthropic's Usage Policies

Please ensure that you follow Anthropic's Usage Policies when using MESA's Claude integration:

ShopPad's Recommendation

We recommend testing the prompt in the Anthropic dashboard before using MESA's Create Message action. This allows you to try different models and prompts and will estimate the token cost for each automation.

As Claude is not our product, we would like to note that we are not responsible for its output. We recommend replicating your preferred prompt using the Claude UI to verify that it meets your expectations before automating it with MESA.

How Claude Uses Your Data

The Claude app makes API calls to Anthropic. Only the variables explicitly configured in the MESA builder will be shared with Anthropic. MESA does not store any of this information beyond your data retention date. Anthropic does not use data submitted to and generated by their API to train Anthropic models or improve Anthropic's service offering.

To opt out of any data sharing with AI models, simply do not use the Claude step in any of your workflows.

Learn more about how and when Anthropic uses use to train their models. Read MESA's Data Processing Agreement.
