Allowing Users to Create API Keys

The API allows your engineers to create custom integrations, flows and reports. Unfortunately, numerous tools exist that allow novice programmers to create inefficient automations, such as a test script that logs in and lists a large directory every few minutes, or a script that repeatedly uploads the same file. This can lead to wasted storage and unnecessary platform usage.

To prevent this, your site will only allow site administrators to create API keys. You can control this behavior with the site-wide setting to allow users to create their own API keys.

When the setting is disabled (the default behavior), users who are not site administrators will not be able to add new API keys to their user account. Site administrators can create or remove API keys for individual users. If a key is created for a user who isn't a site administrator, they will not be able to remove it.

When the setting is enabled, any user create can API key for their own user account, and they can remove API keys from their settings.

Regardless of whether the setting is enabled or disabled, users who are not site administrators cannot view or manage API keys for other users.
