Delete an API Key

Deleting a key is required before you can create a new one.

Deletion is necessary when you are ready to rotate your keys for security purposes, or if you have lost your API_KEY_ID or API_KEY_SECRET and need to generate new ones. ScienceIO API keys do not expire.


Deletion is permanent.

Any ScienceIO API call made using a deleted key will fail, so make sure the key is no longer in use. Deleted API keys cannot be recovered.

  1. If you wish to generate a new key, you will now be able to click Create an API Key. Copy these keys to a secure location before you close the window, as they will not display again.
