Generating an API key

From the API keys tab of their account, authenticated users have the possibility to generate API keys, as well as to manage them.

Important

API keys are bound to a specific domain. They only work on the domain on which they were created.

These API keys allow to use the following APIs: ODS Search API v1 and v2, OData, WFS and CSW (more info in the Using APIs documentation).
