How to create a public API key in systeme.io
In this article, you will learn how to create a public API key in systeme.io.
What are API keys?
API keys are unique identifiers that authenticate requests to our Public API. They enable you to programmatically access and manage various resources on our platform, such as contacts and tags. You can have a maximum of two API keys at any given time.
Creating a public API key on systeme.io:
To create a public API key from your systeme.io account, click on your profile picture, then on "Settings" (number 1 in the image), and then scroll down to "Public API keys" (number 2 in the image).
Click on "Create" to start creating a public API key (number 3 in the image).
Choosing a name and expiration date
On the "Create public api key" popup that appears, choose a name, and select an expiration date and time for your API key.
After providing this information, click on "Save" (number 4 in the image).
To choose a specific expiration date and time for your API key, select from the calendar, then click on "Apply".
Note: To have your API key remain active indefinitely, leave the "Expiration" field empty.
Copying your token
After creating your API key, copy your token immediately, as it will not be accessible afterward. To copy your token, click on the "copy" icon, located to the left of the token:
Below is an example of a token which can no longer be accessed:
- To easily identify and manage your tokens, each must have a unique name.
- A token can only be copied immediately after creating it. If you forgot to copy your token, delete it and create a new one.
- As a security measure, our system will send an email to the user to notify them whenever a new public API key has been created in their systeme.io account.
