Generate a new secret value

If you accidentally lose or expose one of your secret values, follow the steps below to generate a new one.

  1. Log in to the Redox dashboard.
  2. From the navigation menu, click the Developer page.
  3. All of your configured API keys display on the page. For the API key whose key and secret need to be replaced, click the Edit button.

  5. A confirmation modal appears, which says “Do you want to change your API Key Secret?” If you confirm, the previous secret becomes invalidated and a new secret is generated to replace it. This means the previous secret immediately stops working.

    Copy your secret value first

    Your new secret value only displays once, so be sure to copy the new secret before you exit out of the modal. Note that even clicking outside the modal dismisses the New Secret modal, so copy the secret value before clicking anywhere else on the screen.
