API keys

You use API keys to establish a connection between Automation Cloud and other applications that are external to Automation Cloud. External applications can be either UiPath desktop applications, or third-party applications.

API keys are available for several UiPath services (products) that are part of Automation Cloud.

 

Orchestrator


About API Access

You can view API access information for each of your existing Orchestrator services on the Admin > Tenants page.
This information is required for authenticating to your Automation Cloud-based Orchestrator services via API calls.

📘

Getting API access information for non-administrator users

If you do not have access to the Admin > Tenants page, which are only available to users who have the organization administrator role. you can get API access information from the Preferences page for your account. Instructions...

🚧

Not applicable for Azure AD

If the authentication settings for your organization are set to use Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), the API Access button is not available and these instructions are not applicable for you.

In this case, you must do one of the following:

  • log out of Automation Cloud and then log in with a UiPath account instead of an Azure AD account
  • (recommended) use the OAuth flow instead.

 

Viewing API access information

You can view the API access information for a service if you have the Organization Administrator role, or if you are assigned to that service.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Tenants.
    The Tenants page opens, listing all existing tenants.

  2. Click at the left of the tenant name to display the provisioned services for that tenant.

  3. At the right of the Orchestrator row, click the API Access icon.
    If you do not see the icon at the end of the row, click at the right of the Orchestrator row and select API Access from the list.
    The API Access window is displayed with the following service-specific information:

    • User Key - allows you to generate unique login keys to be used by APIs or external applications to log in and perform actions on your behalf. This was previously known as your refresh token.
    • Account Logical Name - your organization name (for example myNewOrg).
    • Tenant Name - the tenant's display name.
    • Client ID - specific to the Orchestrator application itself, it is the same for all users and Orchestrator services on a specific platform. For example, all the Orchestrator services on cloud.uipath.com have the same Client ID value.
  4. Click the copycopy icon next to each field to copy its value.

You can use the copied information to consume cloud APIs.

Revoking API access

Revoking access cancels all previously assigned user keys, thus breaking all applications that rely on previously assigned user keys. A new user key is automatically generated for the selected Orchestrator service.
You must share the new user key to all the affected applications.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Tenants.
    The Tenants page opens, listing all existing tenants.
  2. Click at the left of the tenant name to display the provisioned services for that tenant.
  3. At the right of the Orchestrator row, click the API Access icon.
    If you do not see the icon at the right end of the row, click at the right of the Orchestrator row and select API Access from the list.
    The API Access window opens.
  4. Click Revoke Access.
    A confirmation window opens.
  5. Click Revoke to confirm your action.
    The value of the service's User Key is revoked and the Refresh Tokens Revoked window is displayed.
  6. Close the Refresh Tokens Revoked window.
  7. Copy and share the new key with users who need it.

 

Document Understanding


The API key for Document Understanding is available on the Admin > Licenses > Robots & Services page.

From here, you can:

  • Copy the key for use in external applications.
  • Click the icon to generate a new key.
    Generating a new key renders the old key invalid. Any external applications that used the old key won't be able to connect to Automation Cloud any more.

For more information, see API Key in the Document Understanding documentation.

 

Computer Vision


The API key for Computer Vision is available on the Admin > Licenses > Robots & Services page.

From here, you can:

  • Copy the key for use in external applications.
  • Click the icon to generate a new key.
    Generating a new key renders the old key invalid. Any external applications that used the old key won't be able to connect to Automation Cloud any more.

For more information, see Computer Vision.
