API Key credentials provide for simple and secure authentication of your application. Ensure the continued security of your application over time by rotating your API Key credentials. 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:
- After signing into the developer portal, click your name, select Projects, and then your project from the list. Your project details and available application credentials are then displayed.
- REST: API Key and OAuth 2.0 Token credentials
- HERE SDKs for Android, iOS and Flutter: OAuth 2.0 Token credentials
HERE Premium Edition SDKs for iOS and Android: APP CODE credentials
- Click Create API key to generate a maximum of two API Keys for your application authentication credentials. The API key is created and displayed.
Your application API Key is now ready for use. For information on how to use API Keys for authenticating with HERE services, see Use API Key credentials.
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.
