API Access

You can find this section in HostBill Admin → Settings → Security Settings → API Access.

Table of contents


This section lets you manage access over API. It allows you to generate new API keys, change their allowed methods and remove them.

When generating new API keys you can specify which IP or Subnets you want to grant access, or leave it empty to allow access from all IPs.

Generate API Keys

In order to get API ID provide your IP address / Subnet, enter the name and choose if the API access should be undeletable - when this option is enabled the API Key will be impossible to remove from UI, only db removal will be possible. This is to be used with mobile API clients. Once you click Add API access button the API ID and API Key will be generated.

Allowed API ID functions

Each API Key set can have their own set of allowed methods to use. All methods are allowed by default right after you generate new keys, but you can quickly disable/enable all by toggling Enable all checkbox.

API Usage log

API Usage log allows you to track API requests made to your system. Each entry contains information about date, called function, result of requests, caller API ID and IP address.
