  1. Log in as an administrator to the Control Room.
  2. Go to Administration > Roles.
  3. Click Create role.
  4. Scroll to the API section.
  5. Select Generate API-Key.
  6. Type a unique name in the Role name field.
  7. Click Create role.
  8. Go to Administration > Users, and assign the custom role you just created to non-admin users.
  9. Log in as the user you assigned the Generate API-Key role to.
  10. Under the user name, click Generate API-Key, and copy the API-Key to your clipboard.
