Can you mention the possibility of requesting an API key in the docs? It was displayed for the 1.0 API.

1 Answer 1


Quoting the very first paragraph in the section General:

Applications should be registered on Stack Apps to get a request key. Request keys grant more requests per day, and are necessary for using access_tokens created via authentication.

Click the first link, and there's the registration form.

  • Hmmmmm... Looks like i was looking too hard for API key. :-)
