Enabling the API

To enable the API:

  1. Go the the Manage > Integrations pane.
  2. Expand “In”
  3. Set “Enable” to "ON". This enables the API for the application as a whole.
  4. Click “Generate Access Key” to create a unique “Access Key” value.

Every API request must include the Access Key. AppSheet verifies the Access Key before performing the action. This ensures that only authorized API calls are performed. 

AppSheet allows you to specify an “Alternate Access Key”. This allows you to replace a potentially compromised Access Key while providing time for you to update existing clients that use the potentially compromised Access Key.
