Regenerate API keys

Considerations to have when resetting your API keys

Regenerating API keys has repercussions. So while you may have lost your API key or can no longer use the key you created, you may wish to take a step back before clicking the ‘generate’ button.

By default, regenerating an API key is the same as removing one from an internal-systems perspective. Meaning unplanned and unevaluated actions could leave your systems without an access point.

See this guide to discover our best practices in regards to removing API keys

Regenerating your API keys

Follow this stepwise procedure to regenerate your API key. Only do this once you are sure no systems depend on your old API key any longer.

  1. Sign in to https://app.inkit.com
  2. Navigate to the API Keys tab
  1. Click on the ‘generate’ button for the specific API key you wish to regenerate

Again, please be aware that when you click the generate button, you are disconnecting every active system dependent on that API key.
