Created by Contensis product team, last modified by r.saunders on 30 Mar 2021

If you think that an API key may have been compromised, or you no longer use the application that was accessing your content through a particular API key, you can disable that API key.

  1. Press the Settings button in the sidebar. The Settings menu will open revealing a number of options.
  2. Select API keys to open the API Keys list.
  3. Find the API key you want to disable in the list, and press the Action button denoted by the triple dot.
  4. Select Edit from the menu, the API key screen will open.
  5. Toggle the API Key status button to disable the API key.
  6. Click Update API Key to save your changes. The API key will now be listed as disabled.

Warning: Any application or website using this API key will expect it to be enabled to access its content.
