How do I create API tokens and secrets?


Chase Greiser


Bandwidth APIs use BASIC HTTP authentication. You'll need to have your user ID, token, and secret to make API calls. To create API tokens and secrets for V2 HTTP Messaging, perform the following steps:

  1. Log into the Bandwidth Dashboard.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select Applications and then click API Credentials located in the top-right corner.


  1. Once you're on the Tokens and Secrets page, click Create New.


Note: Your token and secret pairs won't be visible after you leave this screen, so please store them securely once you create them. You can return to this screen to add or delete token and secret pairs at anytime.
