Create API Key

This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to create an API Key. API Keys allow you to securely store and retrieve your data from the blockchain.

Before creating an API key you will need to sign in. You also require access to the bucket in that you intend to create the API key.

Create API Key

  1. Select the Bucket: Begin by clicking on a Bucket button on the left-hand side of the page. Choose the Bucket where you want to create the API Key.


  1. Create a New API Key: Click the "Create an API-Key" button on the Bucket Dashboard screen, indicated by a "+" icon within the API-Keys area.


  1. Enter API Key Name: In the "API Key Name" field, provide a name for your API Key that helps you identify its purpose.
  2. Set Permissions: Select the desired permissions for your API Key. You can choose Read and Write access if you want your key to have both read and write access to data.
  3. Backup Your API Key: It's crucial to create a backup of your API Key. Please store your API key in a safe place. We can not retrieve any API keys once they are created. Tick the box labeled "I have made a backup of this API key" to confirm that you've securely stored a copy of your API Key.
  4. Create the API Key: Finally, click on the "Create" button to generate your API Key.
