Registration is not required to enjoy most of the API’s capabilities, as it is entirely possible to use it anonymously with a limit of only 100 hits per day. But if you want to enjoy all the services of the API and increase the daily limit to 40000 hits, then the user must register for free and get an API key.
- Sign up using a Social Login (Github, Google, Linkedin, or Microsoft).
- Sign up entering an email and a password.
If the user signs up with social login, then it will be re-directed to the Home page of Auth0 Signals, displaying at the top the API Key and the quota.
If the user opts to sign up with an email and password, it must first verify the account creation to obtain an API Key and the quota. Don’t forget to check your account to complete the sign-up process.
The API Key is a Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) 128-bit number represented by 16 octets of 32 hexadecimal digits displayed in five groups separated by hyphens, in the form 8-4-4-4-12 for a total of 36 characters (32 hexadecimal characters and 4 hyphens). Example:
Copy the UUID and paste when needed: API query, SDK, CLI, Slack, or any 3rd party tool.
