Create API key

What is an API Key?

An API key is a unique encrypted string used to identify the application that makes an API call. This key acts as a password to your APIs. You must include this API Key for authentication while executing an API command.
The authentication works like this - During runtime, the application will verify the API key and allows the request if the Key is valid. Otherwise, you will get an error as a response to the request.
