The first step in interacting with our API is to generate an API key. To do this, click Create Key button.
You can copy the Enterprise ID, necessary for API calls, by clicking on the copy icon next to Enterprise ID on the top right of this section.
Enter a unique API name and description (optional) and click Create Key.
Click Generate Token. This will generate a unique OAuth-based API key.
You can then copy (or renew if needed) your API key.
API keys created after end of July 2020 needs to be renewed every 1000 days after creation. But the API keys created before end of July 2020 will expire at the start of February 2023.
You will need your API key and Enterprise ID to access our CLI platform as well as to use the SDK/API in your development and management systems.
An API key is tied to the user account used to create the key. If you delete a user via User management, then any API keys associated with that user will also be deleted. The API key will be rendered invalid for API, SDK, and CLI use. To avoid such unintended deletion of API key, a best practice is to create a specific user account just for API key management.
