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.

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
