Setting the API key in Site Configuration

Authentication using the RESTful API requires an API key, as explained in the API authentication topic. The API key is set in the FotoWeb Site Configuration.

Note: Legacy Widget and API Key Authentication are deprecated and will be set to End of Life on January 1st, 2025.

If you have implemented custom integrations with FotoWeb, such as CMS integrations, we recommend updating the authentication methods in use to OAuth, which was introduced in FotoWeb FR12 (version 8.0.850). 

Legacy authentication methods, including FWAPIToken, have been deprecated and will be removed in the future.

From the Tools menu (cogwheel icon), go to Site Configuration > Integrations > Legacy Integrations.



Important: If you build an integration based on the API key and then change it in the Site Configuration, the integration will no longer work until you update the key accordingly in your integration.
