API v2

Getting an API Key

With API v2 we created a dedicated API management page for all API needs. You can review, create and delete your API v2 keys by accessing this page.

By default, vouched users are able to automatically get an API key with a PUBLIC access level. In order to get a key with elevated permissions you’ll have to file a bug.


API v2 is designed with users privacy in mind first. Each API key has a privacy level assigned to it. In order for the API consumer to access a user/group/skill detail, the key’s privacy level should be greater or equal to the fields privacy value. Else the field value in the response is empty.


API consumers should either provide the api key as a get parameter api-key or as an HTTP header X-API-KEY.
