Step 3: Generate an API Key


To obtain the API Key please follow the steps below.

1. Log into your Lob account, navigate to your Account, and press Settings from the dropdown menu.

 



2. Navigate to the API Keys section:


Note: To make the API as explorable as possible, accounts have Test and Live environment API keys.

To switch between environments, use the appropriate key for that environment when performing a request. You can find each environment's API key in your dashboard under Settings.

Test API keys are always prefixed with test_ and production API keys with live_. 


3. Chose the API Key you would like to use for your Integration.





Secret API keys should be kept confidential and only stored on your own servers. 
Your account's secret API key can perform any API request to Lob without restriction.

Publishable API keys are limited to US verifications, international verifications, and US autocomplete requests. 





Step 4: Enter the API Key and Password


Simply copy the generated API Key and paste it into the Username field

In the Password field enter the same password as your Lob account.


Press Finish.


 

Congratulations! Lob is now successfully integrated.
