Getting started - API key

API Key Access

The API can be used to directly integrate the data collected and processed with DroneDeploy into your own applications and services.

Enterprise customers with API Access will automatically have access to generating an API Key. This key can be generated by following the instructions below as an admin or owner of the organization.

Develop with DroneDeploy

DroneDeploy offers a powerful API to help Enterprise developers and app development partners to generate, display, measure, integrate and back up drone data. Looking for access? Send a request to the DroneDeploy Sales Team for access to the API on your subscription or Developer Partner account.

Generating an API Key

Once you've gained access, you may generate the API key from the Preferences section:

Select Generate to create a key and copy using the blue Copy button.

Save this for your records.
In the event the key is lost, you'll need to generate a new key and the previous key will be voided.

You're now ready to use the DroneDeploy API!

Lost API Key?

If you've previously had an API key but lost access, you'll need to generate a new one for security purposes. To do so - follow the same workflow as above, however, you should be presented with a warning:

If you're willing to void the previous key, select Generate to continue.If you're willing to void the previous key, select Generate to continue.

If you're willing to void the previous key, select Generate to continue.
