API Key Processes

This section contains documentation specific to requesting and managing API keys.


API keys are unique alphanumeric values used to identify an application making API requests. API keys allow us to provide API usage metrics and allow our clients to control access to their data at any time.

In the example below, r538c65d7d3rsx2265tvzfje is an API key.


To use the Privacy API a developer must request an API key, which will be issued in a pending state until the key has been approved. This process is summarized below:

  1. Developer requests keys through the Developer Tools available on the Bazaarvoice Portal.
  2. Technical administrator enables or disables keys using the Developer Tools available on the Bazaarvoice Portal

Details can be found under API key Management.
