Generating an API key

How to generate an API key

In order to generate an API key for your workspace, you must be an admin. If you're not an admin for your workspace, you can ask an admin to complete the following steps:

  • From the dropdown beside your workspace name, click Workspace Settings
  • Click the Developers tab
  • Click Generate Key and give your key a name

By default, keys are generated with all of their permissions disabled. You can revoke your key's permissions with Revoke Token at any time.

Changing key permissions

Some third party services like Zapier will need more permissions than others to work.

For things to run smoothly, we recommend setting all of the permissions to Read and Write, unless you have a reason not to.
