How to generate an API Key

In the instances where you wish to connect 7shifts to an external application or integration, an API Key will be required. To generate an API Key, please follow these steps.

Note:

Only Admins can create API Keys within the 7shifts account. Once created, only the Admin will be able to view it.

  1. As an Admin, sign into your 7shifts account and click on your Profile Picture. Select Company Settings and click on the API tab
