Create API Keys

This page describes how to create API keys.

After creating the API key, best practice is to save the automatically generated KeyID string somewhere secure.

To learn about how to grant permissions to an API key, refer to Update API Keys.


If you create a new fabric after you create an API key, then the API key permissions will not apply to the newly-created fabric. You will need to update the API key permissions.

Follow these instructions to create a new API key using the GDN console web UI.

  1. Log in to your Macrometa account.
  2. Click Access > API Keys.
  3. Click New API Key.
  4. Enter a unique ID.
