Adding a project key
metadata.jsonfile in your Mapeo configuration, you can include a
projectKey, which is a random cryptographic string of characters to prevent unwanted devices from getting access to the data.
Once a Mapeo Mobile or Mapeo Desktop device has imported a configuration with a project key, it can only sync with another Mapeo Mobile or Mapeo Desktop device that has the same project key.
You can edit the project key (for example, if you want to make first 4 characters identifiable to a project) but it can only contain letters
It can also only be 64 characters long -- no more, no less.
To create a
projectKey, first open the Terminal.
Copy and paste the following command into the terminal
You'll see something like this (but with x replaced with real characters and numbers)
Copy this string and add it to the
metadata.jsonfile so it looks like this:
Notice that there are double quotes
"around each value.
