API keys

API keys gives full access to the management of all Selectel services in the same way as the login and password for account of my.selectel.ru control panel.

API key can be used as the main token in automation systems for Selectel services that don’t have an additional authorization system, for example, for Dedicated servers or DNS hosting.

For services which the separation of access rights is implemented using their own authorization system, such as the Selectel Cloud platform or Cloud storage, API key can be used to work with higher-level entities - projects, virtual data centers, users, and so on. To manage virtual infrastructure objects (containers, virtual machines), you need to get a temporary token and use it to work.

To create a API key click the Add key:

  1. Enter the name in the opened block.

  2. Click the Create Key.

To remove API keys, open the menu and select Delete.

If the key can be useful in the future, but is not needed now, you can temporarily disable it. In order to enable the key, activate it in the corresponding block.

To rename a key, open the menu and select Rename.
