API keys and authentication
Waypoint uses a
Password pair to allow access to the API through Basic HTTP Authentication (this is not the same as your Waypoint dashboard username/password).
To access or create a new API key:
- Go to the 'Settings' page of your workspace.
- Scroll down to the 'API keys' section, click on '+ Add key', and then follow the directions to finish adding the key.
- After creating the key, scroll down to the bottom of the 'Settings' page and you should now see your new API key with a
Passwordthat can be used in the authorization header within your API call.
To get started using the API, we recommend following our quick start guide.
