An API key gives access to the project to create buckets, upload files to the network, and read them when they are needed.

Create an API Key

1. Click on "API Key" in the sidebar.

2. Click "Create New API Key".

3. Name your API Key and click "Create API Key"

4. Copy and save your API key in a safe place, as you will need it later. Your key will only be displayed once.

You're almost there! To interact with your project, you need the Uplink CLI, which we will explain on the next page.
