API Key Generation and Permissions

Keys give access to your users to access the API. See Getting Started with the API for ideas on what you can do with the API.

Keys are generated and distributed by Kenna administrators only. 

To manage API keys, log in to Kenna and click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the Kenna screen.

In the drop down, click API Keys.

On the API Keys page you can view who has an API key assigned to them by looking in the Key Issued column. You can also generate a new token for a user by click on the Change Token action, and remove their API Key (and access to the API) by clicking on the Revoke Token action.

Please consult company policies regarding key management to determine if keys need to be centrally stored or managed. 

Only system roles (administrators, normal and read-only) can have keys assigned at this time. API keys follow standard permissions for those roles (see Role Permissions help page for details).

To assign a key with read-only access, a user must be created with read-only user chosen as their Role, and then a key can be generated for that user.
