Hostaway API key
Hostaway has an API that can be used to manage various functions within the platform. Please refer to our extensive API Documentation if you wish to use it to access Hostaway.
You can activate the API in the Hostaway dashboard > Settings > Hostaway API
How to create a new API key?
Click on Create > Give it a name
You will get an API key
Important: We will only show it ONCE. Save it if you wish to use it for more than 1 connection.
The API key will auto-generate a name with this format: Partner name API Key YYYY-MM-DD
Very important: The API key should be used to generate the access_token. The generated access_token is valid for a maximum of 24 months. It is recommended to renew the access_token automatically or manually every 12 months. In the event, the connected application can not renew the access_token a newly generated API key should be used to reconnect the Hostaway account.
How to rename an API key?

How to delete an API key?

How to revoke a Token?

The generated secret API key and the token will only appear ONE time in the Hostaway dashboard and expires after 24 months.
After you have generated it and leave the page, it will no longer be visible to you nor to our support team!
Store the key at a personal safe location to use it later during your development time.
