Retrieve all API Keys belonging to the authenticated user



API Overview

api-overview page anchor

Your application, mail client, or website can all use API (Application Programming Interface) keys to authenticate access to SendGrid services. You can revoke an API key at any time without having to change your username and password, and an API key can be scoped to perform a limited number of actions.

There are 3 different types of API keys:

  • Full Access
    Allows the API key to access GET , PATCH , PUT , DELETE and POST endpoints for all parts of your account, excluding billing and Email Address Validation.
  • Restricted Access
    Customizes levels of access for all parts of your account, excluding billing and Email Address Validation.
  • Billing Access
    Allows the API key to access billing endpoints for the account.

You must create your first API key using the Twilio SendGrid App(link takes you to an external page). Once you have a key with permissions to manage other keys, you can use the endpoints documented as part of this API.

(warning)

Warning

Twilio SendGrid API keys are 69 characters long. We are unable to make exceptions for third-party infrastructure that is unable to support a key of 69 characters.


GET/v3/api_keys

Base url: https://api.sendgrid.com

This endpoint allows you to retrieve all API Keys that belong to the authenticated user.

A successful response from this API will include all available API keys' names and IDs.

For security reasons, there is not a way to retrieve the key itself after it's created. If you lose your API key, you must create a new one. Only the "Create API keys" endpoint will return a key to you and only at the time of creation.

An api_key_id can be used to update or delete the key, as well as retrieve the key's details, such as its scopes.


Authentication

Authorizationstringrequired
Default: Bearer <<YOUR_API_KEY_HERE>>

on-behalf-ofstring

The on-behalf-of header allows you to make API calls from a parent account on behalf of the parent's Subusers or customer accounts. You will use the parent account's API key when using this header. When making a call on behalf of a customer account, the property value should be "account-id" followed by the customer account's ID (e.g., on-behalf-of: account-id <account-id>). When making a call on behalf of a Subuser, the property value should be the Subuser's username (e.g., on-behalf-of: <subuser-username>). See On Behalf Of for more information.
