Generate an API key

Oganization and place admins can set up integrations. A Kisi API key is required for most integrations that require more than listening to Kisi webhooks. Please create an API key for each instance of an integration.

Generate a Kisi API key

You need to have organization administrator or organization owner rights to create an API key. We recommend creating API keys from the organization owner's account, to avoid the API key becoming invalid when an organization admin loses their admin rights.

  1. Sign in to Kisi
  2. On the top right corner, click on your name and click on My Account
  3. Next, select the API tab and click on Add API key
  4. Enter your name, your Kisi password, and your verification code and click Add
  5. Copy the API key shown on the screen and click Close

A user can have up to 40 API keys. If there are more, Kisi expires them. Also, API keys expire after 6 months of inactivity by default, unless expire: false is passed when creating them. In that case, they don't expire at all.
