Custom Components authCode Parameter

In the documentation for custom tabs/actions/cards/menu actions it mentions the authCode parameter which is described as:
"An encoded value used by partner applications to authenticate the request (included only for tabs or menu actions configured for a partner application)."
How does this work? Is it static or dynamic? How is it set/generated?

For future reference for anyone else trying to get the authCode included in the custom tab it does not appear possible to do this without support helping out. You will need someone on the BH support team to add you as a partner on each account you would like to create a custom tab on that sends through the authCode info. That is what is meant by the prerequisites portion of this documentation, otherwise you won't appear in the 'Partner Name' dropdown which then won't send through the authCode: ... omponents/
