How to get your API key

From XING Events Developer Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

An API Key can be "connected" to one specific event (can only access data of that event) or to an user account (can access all events of that user).

It is possible to create API keys by the API itself: See ApiKey: Create) and assign it to the user (User: Request Permission) or event (Event: Grant Permission) you want to access.

But the easiest ways to get your API key is by creating one in the frontend of your user account after logging in to your account on www.xing-events.com.

Create an API key with access for one event

Go to https://www.xing-events.com/mycenter/events.html, select the event you would like to have access to and create a new API key at the menu item "Edit Event -> Permissions".

Create an API key with access to all events of your account

Log in to the account you want to grant permission to, go to https://www.xing-events.com/mycenter/settings/apiKey.html, or click on My Account.
Create a new API key with user permission in the API key tab.
