Demo account API?


Guest HJP123

Question

Been trying to generate an API key for a demo account, and have been searching for how to do this but can't seem to find any way to achieve this. Does anyone know if this is indeed still possible, and if so how I would go about generating the key?

can you add a screen shot.  I've created my demo account and have opened the web platform and opened the demo platform.  

I don't see "my account".

I do see settings, but not see anywhere to enter an API KEY or generate a new key.

@Jimmy423,  ok, not sure why that would be, possibly a technical problem as the others in the list would also seem important on any account type.

On the 'Contact Us' page the chat function is not open on the weekends but may be worth using the 'Send us a query' function while waiting as maybe some else on the forum may know the answer.

Hi. sorry, don't have a solution but just to say- I'm in the same boat. Have spent 2 hours wandering around the website but couldn't find it anywhere. I thought I saw it in the past but I might have imagined it.

Solution: Sign up for a demo-CFD account (as well as just the share account) and these additional options will appear.

These options do not seem to be appearing for me, and I have done just as you said above.

Do I also need to create a live CFD account for the options to appear?? Not too keen on this 😕

Appreciate any help!

Cheers

Can't seem to see a FAQ on generating an API Key....

Also, the instructions on 'getting started' for generating an API Key are for the old platform.  The new platform does not seem to have these options
