BlazeMeter API keys

Using BlazeMeter API is easy. To do so, you will need your API key, which can also be used for certain integrations like BlazeMeter's Jenkins plugin.

Find your API key

Go to the user settings drop down menu at the top right corner of the screen, click on it and then click on 'Settings'. You will be transferred to the 'Settings' Panel.

You will see the 'API Key' section under the 'Profile Settings'.

Copy and paste the API Key into a document for later use. This key will be used as a parameter in the API to identify the user.

Generate a new API key

Go to the user settings drop down menu at the top right corner of the screen, click on it and then click on 'Settings'. You will be transferred to the 'Settings' Panel.

There, click on the '+' icon to create a new API key.Screen_Shot_2017_03_27_at_2.01.07_PM.png Then, give your API key a relevant name that is useful for your reference, and set its expiration period.Screen_Shot_2017-03-27_at_1.57.27_PM.png

You've now successfully created a new API key.

Regenerate a new 'Secret' API key for your API key

Every API key has a 'Secret' API key that is visible only to you when you initially create a new API key. In case you forgot your 'Secret' or you simply wish to regenerate it, go to your API keys section, and hover over the relevant API key.Screen_Shot_2017-03-27_at_1.58.05_PM.pngYou will now see a 'Regenerate' button on the right of the API key. By clicking it you regenerate a new 'Secret API key' (and not a new API key).

Limit the expiration for all API keys under your account

The Account's owner or admin can limit the maximum expiration date for all the API keys of all the users of the Account. That is very useful in case an Account has to take strict security measures.

Go to the user settings drop down menu at the top right corner of the screen, click on it and then click on 'Settings'. You will be transferred to the 'Settings' Panel.
