Hello everyone, I am developing the code for trading with “Advanced Trade API”
For few days I was able to obtain balances using recently created API key (I was using https://api.pro.coinbase.com/accounts/ endpoint)
Then today, suddenly, for the same request, using same API/Secret keys I’ve received “Invalid API Key” message.
Hmm, I’ve decided to re-generate the key.
Once the key is generated, it is marked as “Disabled”.
The “Enable” link, though present, is not applicable, “greyed out”
Can anyone please tell me what am I doing wrong? Or anything I need to do to enable my new key?
(I do apologize if the answer to that was already posted, I just was not able to find it, please point to it)
Thanks in advance.
Hello @nomadicus! Welcome to the forum community.
We would like to let you know that for security measures, API keys are sometimes disabled for 48 hours upon creation. This is a security measure that helps prevent any unauthorised access to your account as API keys can give third parties access to not only read your data, but create transactions with your balances and payment methods. At this time, there is no way for us to expedite this process or remove this feature from your account.
Also, the endpoint you were using (https://api.pro.coinbase.com/accounts/) is of Coinbase Pro, which is being deprecated and we would recommend you to use Advance Trade APIs. You may look at this List Accounts endpoint of Advance Trade API.
We hope this helps. We’d be happy to answer any more questions.
Thank you, and have a great day ahead!
@rishabh Thank you very much for your prompt answer
