How to generate an API key for Holded

The Holded API is a tool that allows Holded to communicate and share information with other applications. It is like a "translator" that helps different programs work together and share information easily.

You can integrate Holded in a generic way with other applications, however, the API is very useful in cases where you want to make a customised integration between Holded and another application commonly used in your company (e.g. Accounting System). This way you can automate the use of the platform as much as possible.

In order to use the Holded API you will need to generate an API Key that will allow you to identify your Holded account and transfer information between applications. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Settings in the top right corner.
  2. In the More section, click on Developers.
  3. Click + New API Key.
  4. Enter the name you want to give to the key in the Description field. ​We recommend that the name refers to the application you want to integrate with Holded (e.g. Accounting System).
  5. Click Save.

This action will generate an alphanumeric code that you can copy by hovering over it:
