How to create an API key in the RAiD user interface


This procedure applies to Raido - the ARDC’s RAiD user interface.


In order to do this, you will need to be a Raido Operator or Service Point Admin.


  1. Visit the RAiD test, demo, or production user interface

  2. In the Sign-in pane, click on the Google, AAF or ORCID button, depending on which authentication provider you used when you requested RAiD user interface authorisation.

  3. Follow the normal login process for your authentication provider and, if necessary, authorise the connection with Raido

  4. Open the hamburger menu (indicated by the three parallel lines) on the top-right of the user interface.

  5. Click API keys

  6. Click the + button on the top-right of the table

  7. Enter a Subject - this can be the name of the system or user who will be using the key

  8. Select a Role - this will determine which operations the key user will be able to perform

  9. Click Create

Before the key can be used, you will need to generate a token
