With the HubSpot API key, your developers can create custom applications with HubSpot’s APIs. Each key is specific to a HubSpot account, not an individual user, and only one key is allowed at a time.
You must have Super Admin permissions to access your account's API key.
Providing your API key to a developer will give them full access to make changes to your account through HubSpot's API, including reading logged emails from connected email accounts and other third-party data.
For added security, consider rotating your HubSpot API key every six months. Rotating your HubSpot API key will deactivate the existing API key and generate a new one. HubSpot will display the age of the API key and recommend when you should rotate your API key.
Reminders to rotate the API key will be sent to Super Admins and users who last created or rotated the API key in the following frequencies and notification types:
While this may create downtime and require effort, it adds a layer of security by preventing malicious applications from accessing your HubSpot information with your existing API key.
To rotate your HubSpot API key:
API calls using the deactivated HubSpot API key will now fail and any application using the key will no longer be able to access your information.
Rotating your API key will not affect your connection with the Salesforce integration. However if you have a custom integration installed, you will need to update your API key after you rotate it.
Please note: Connected apps installed through the App Marketplace will not be affected when you rotate your API key.
Deactivating your API key will not create a new key. API calls using the deactivated HubSpot API key will fail and any application using the key will no longer be able to access your information.To deactivate your API key:
You can view a dated log of users who’ve viewed, created, or deactivated your account’s API key in the Audit log section.
To help you debug one of your integrations or to ensure you’re complying with HubSpot’s API usage guidelines, you can view a log of your API key calls for the previous 7 days.
