Getting your API Keys

So you want to give Veed a spin, or you’ve already signed up for your free Veed account and want to understand what you can and can’t do? You’re in the right place!


1. Signup for your Veed account

To use our API, first you need to signup for your free Veed account.

Once you finish signup, you should see your Workspace Dashboard. This is your home for managing your video editing activity on Veed.

On the Free plan, you are able to edit videos of maximum duration 10 minutes. You will not be charged for this unless you choose to upgrade for more editing power.



2. Get your API Access Key

On your Workspace Dashboard, click on the Settings tab on the side menu. This will open up a section as shown below. At the bottom of the page, you will find a button that reads *Enable API. Click on that button to enable the API section of your dashboard.

Once, you have done that, you will be taken to the section shown below. Here, you can copy your API keys which will be required for all interactions with the API. You will also notice that an API tab has now been added to your side menu for easy access subsequently.

Note:
Make sure to use the test key key_test_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX while in development and switch to the production key key_live_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX for your deployment environment.



3. Adding your Webhook URL(Optional).

If you would like to make use of Webhooks(recommended) instead of poll the API in order to keep track of the status of renders, make sure to add your webhook URL in the field provided(See image below).

You may learn more about working with webhooks here.
