Displaying the API Key

Call the API key as follows:

  1. In the left menu, click Management > Users.
  2. In the API Key section, click Show.

The API key will be displayed.


I go to my.1and1.com and click on "cloud" to manage my cloud-bases server. Under "Management" I only have one option, "Logs". No "Users" option (I am the only user). How do I get the API key? I installed the oneandone CLI, but it needs the API key.

Or is the oneandone API not supported for cloud server customers?

Hello dano808080, it sounds like you may have a Managed Cloud Server account. The API Key is only available for Cloud Server accounts with root access.

If you have a root access account but are not able to access the API Key, please contact Support for more in-depth troubleshooting. Email help@1and1.com, put "Cloud Server Community" in the subject line for priority attention, and include a link to this post for their reference.
