API Key for rest api call

Posted by anu31221@gmail.com on 19-Feb-2016 06:59

Are we planning to have API Key for rest API call.

Right now we have to create API ID/Password for each of the zone for outside component connect using RESTAPI. Can we avoid this?

When is the plan to release API key for rest API call?

We have added support for API key now but this is still tied to a user. You can create one user, generate API key for that user and use it in all places. We do not support multiple concurrent REST sessions in public cloud but if you use Basic Auth you can work around this limitation.

Hi Anoop

Did we do any improvement in API Key use.

How to use API Key? I don't see in user profile

Are we allowing concurrent REST session?

Hi Anu,

You can see API Key in user profile after enabling API Token in Password setup page(Setup-> Authentication-> Next) API Authentication.

We just need to use the value of API token instead of password value in login method. Please refer to following link  for more details.


Example as follows:
