What is An API Key? How Do I Find It or Reset it?

What is an API Key?

API stands for “application programming interface”. It is an easy, seamless way for different programs to interact with one another. For most users, the main interaction with the API is through API keys, which is unique string of characters which allows for other programs to have access to your account without having your password. Your API key is just as important to keep secret as your TribeHR password is.

In TribeHR API Keys are most often used for:

  • Subscribing to news feeds
  • Subscribing to calendars
  • Accessing the TribeHR mobile app
  • Custom integrations

  • Once logged in hover over your name in the top right corner 
  • Click on My Employee File
