API: Cant create or use more than 1 API key.


MerlinR

Question

Im having trouble with the API key generation, it appears i cant have more than 1 key enabled in either live or demo. If i try create an API key with one enabled it throws an error.

I cant find anything about this limitation other than it's stated mutiple places you need one Key per app, but cant have more than 1 key on an account. Whats going on?

There seem to be issues on IG's side as I currently have three different API keys for the demo API. So it is indeed possible to have more than one key, however, the key generation seems to be broken for both the demo and live API right now.

I also opened another thread because the live API gives me internal server error responses for most API requests at the time which makes the live API completely unusable. It looks like the incident is still not recognized by IG as their status page still shows that everything is operational.

All in all, I don't like the fact that the contact link on their IG Labs page for API related information is already dead for more than a year and that forum support seems to be rather sparse. It would not be such a problem if the demo API was down time to time. But it is a whole other thing if the live API is completely unusable for more than 24 hours now and that there seems to be no real way to contact IG with API related issues (which for sure are not caused from my side with buggy requests).

Thanks ArturCz, was thinking i was missing something. Since then I have been trying and same issue of not being able to create more than 1 APi key or have more than 1 enabled. This kind of defeats the purpose i have. hopefully someone has better insight.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
