Rotating your API key in DevOpsACCELERATE

An API key is an authentication token that is used by our DevOps integrations and custom code that you write to authenticate to the Venafi Cloud platform.

DevOpsACCELERATE allows you to:

  • rotate your API key any point in time.
  • configure your API key with a specific validity period (periodic expiration or indefinite use).
  • be notified when my API key is going to expire so that I can rotate it and update the integrations and code that are using it.
To rotate your API key when notified

We will notify you 30 days, 7 days, and 1 day before the key expires. You'll receive an email and see a notification in a message banner.
