Rotating keys
Learn how to rotate keys.
You can rotate a standard or restricted API key in your Dashboard if you think an API key is compromised. When you rotate the key, the Dashboard blocks the old key and generates a new one. You can choose to block the old key immediately or allow it to expire after the specified expiration time when you rotate the key. During that specified expiration time, both keys work. It gives you time to make the transition from the old key to the new key. In either case, you can use the new key immediately.
To rotate a key:
  1. 1.
    From the API keys page on the Dashboard, click More options (vertical ellipses) associated with the key you want to rotate and click Rotate.
  2. 2.
    Choose the expiration time from the Choose expiration list.
  3. 3.
    Complete the fields and click Rotate API Key. The Restricted Keys table will display the creation date for Newest Token and Expiring Token, and the expiration date for Expiring Token.
The key won't be available for immediate use. It takes up to 10 minutes for the key to fully propagate.
