An API key is a combination of a unique identifier and a password used to identify and authenticate your API calls.
Whenever you are making an API request, you will need to send your API key to validate the request. Otherwise, you will get a 401 error.
An API key contains two parameters: a secretId and a secretPassword
How to generate your API key
Once you have registered on our platform, you can easily create your API key from the Dashboard.
To generate your API Keys:
- Log in to your Belvo Dashboard.
- Select the environment you want to generate API keys for.
- Select the API Keys tab.
- Expand the Secret Key section. This will automatically generate your API keys for the selected environment.
For security reasons we will only show the password once in the dashboard. Make sure you store it securely to be able to retrieve it later.
