API key

An API key is a long-lived access token created using API key credentials. They are valid for up to one year and are typically embedded directly into client applications. API keys are required for API key authentication.

API keys can be managed and invalidated though a credentials item in a portal. Up to two API keys can be created in each set of API key credentials. The privileges and expiration date of an API key cannot be edited without invalidating the key.
