Your API key

Your account has an associated API Key that you can use with tools such as the Civo command-line client to identify yourself.

You can find your API Key in your account settings under the Security tab.

API Key screen on the Civo dashboard

Keeping your API key secure

It is important to never share the API key publicly as it allows access to creation and deletion of Civo resources such as virtual machines and Kubernetes clusters.

If you need to regenerate or reset the API key, you can do so at any time from the account settings.

Using your API key

If you are accessing the Civo API directly, you can read the API documentation for instructions on authenticating yourself with it.

If you are using another tool such as the Civo CLI, Pulumi, Terraform or any other tool, please refer to the documentation of those tools for authentication with your API key.
