Qlik Sense Business - Generate API Key

Good morning All. 

I am the Tenant Admin and need to create a API Key. I am sure the option to create a API key was previously available. In QSB Management console I have enabled API Keys - below.

and in the API section there is not an option to generate the API key. I am very sure the option used to be available, the 'tutorial' I found online confirms this is where I should be able to generate the API key.

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Even if you are a tenant admin, you still need the developer role.  Grant it to yourself and then you should see the option to create keys.

Thank you for your reply. I agree with you, that is what the help says. In the real world, unless I am doing something very wrong, this is what I see: 

1) Screen shot of my User - I am Developer and Tenant Admin:

2) API keys are enabled:

3) When I go to Management Console > Integration > API Keys I don't see option to Generate New API keys:

I must be missing something along the way..

You were correct! 

There are 2 places where there are 'Settings' options. I was obviously looking at the wrong one. 

Thank you.

Hi Claudiu;

These are the steps that helped me - with some screen shots below - I hope it helps:  

Generating an API key from the hub

You can generate API keys from the hub. Before you start, make sure that the following two requirements are fulfilled:

The setting Enable API keys is turned on in the management console.
The tenant admin has assigned the role developer to you.
Do the following:
Log onto your tenant, for example, https://<tenantname>.com.
Click your profile in the top right corner and select Settings.
Select API keys.
Click Generate new API keys.
Enter an API key description and select when the API key should expire.
Click Generate.
An API key is generated.
Copy the API key and store it in a safe place.

After creation, you can edit the name of the API key. You can also delete it.
