Manage your API key#

You can manage your Rackspace Technology assets with an Application Programmer Interface (API). Review the catalog of Rackspace Technology APIs for more information.

To begin using Rackspace APIs, you need your API key. Your API key is a unique alphanumeric identifier associated with your account. You can use it for universal authentication commands for all of your services.

Reset your API#

Note

When you reset your API key, any third-party applications are disconnected until you set the new API key in your application. If you are using your API key as a part of server code with a site or application, the site or application also breaks. Update your API key for any application to which you connected with the previous API key.
