API Key Credentials

API Key credentials provide for simple and secure authentication of your application. Utilize the API Key credentials key-rotation feature to ensure continued security of your application over time. This is done by creating a second API Key for your application and deleting the original key when it is no longer required. You can use a maximum of two API Keys at once for each application.

To get started, follow these steps:

  1. In the developer portal, click your name and Projects, and select the project you want to develop. Then choose from the application types listed.
  2. Click Generate App. Your application is created and a pop-up window is displayed with your application authentication credentials. An APP ID is generated to identify your application.
  3. Click Create API key to generate a maximum of two API Keys for your application authentication credentials. The API key is created and displayed.

Example

https://geocoder.ls.hereapi.com/search/6.2/geocode.json
?languages=en-US
&maxresults=4
&searchtext=Sunnyvale
&apiKey={YOUR_API_KEY}

Note: If you are upgrading to API key and currently have old App Code Credentials, you can remove them by clicking Remove APP CODE credentials and use your new API key credentials in their place.
