User Accounts and Channels

ThingSpeak API Keys

API keys control access to private data. ThingSpeak™ uses individual channel-level API Keys to control information for each channel and user-level API keys for account level control.

User API Key

The User API Key enables channel-level operations using the API. The User API Key is necessary to create and delete channels and to view information for private channels.

To get your User API Key:

  • Click Account > My Profile.

  • If your API Key is compromised, you can generate a new key: Click Generate New API Key.
