How to find the API keys

API keys are used for authentication with the API platform. These are like passcodes that confirm your identity and that your API request is valid.

The API keys include:

  • client_id - Client ID for the sales unit (the "username")
  • client_secret - Client secret for the merchant (the "password")
  • Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key (primary) - Subscription key for the API product
  • Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key (secondary) - Subscription key for the API product

For information about how to use the keys, see API keys.

You find these as follows:

  1. Select For developers in the left menu. With the API keys tab selected, you should see a table with sales units.
