Get All API Keys for User

Personal API keys are deprecated.

  • You cannot create new Personal API Keys.
  • You cannot use your existing Personal API Keys for accessing the API from March 1, 2021.
  • You must update any existing scripts or tools to use Programmatic API Keys instead.

The Atlas API authenticates using HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide a programmatic API public key and corresponding private key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request.

To learn how to configure API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.

Base URL:

This endpoint retrieves a list of obfuscated API keys for the specified Atlas user. The specified Atlas user must correspond to the Atlas user in the digest authentication component to successfully use this endpoint.


You must have access to an API key that your administrator has generated from the UI before you can successfully use this endpoint. To learn how to get an API Key, see generate an API key.
