Where can I find API credentials?

To access the API for the first time, generate your API credentials. These credentials enable you to request a token, which is crucial for authenticating communication with the authorized API.

To generate API credentials, follow these steps:

Available from version 16.0.0. For versions below 16.0.0, go to Menu > User panel > API credentials.

  1. Go Menu > Your email address.
  2. On the left, click API keys.
  3. Click Create a key
  4. Name your key and click OK.
  5. Copy Client ID and Client secret. They won’t be available after you close this window.
