Obtaining Authentication Keys

The Auth Key is required to authenticate the APIMatic APIs. It is passed in as an Authorization header when making calls to the API for SDK code generation and API transformations.

  1. Click on the arrow visible next to your name on the header navigation (once you have logged in). From the drop-down menu, click on Settings.
