We have got a wordpress website using CiviCRM plugin. The only thing which we have is the CiviCRM site key, but in order to implement the functionality on the website we need CiviCRM API Key.

Can you or anyone please advise from where can we get those details?

Urgent help would be much appreciated.

    As an addition to @ramesh answer, here's a very good explanation on how to do it with the API Explorer: civicrm.stackexchange.com/a/9946/872

  • @Andrei I would vote for this to be the answer! Unfortunately, since it's a comment, it can't be marked as the answer. Pulling in Ramesh's link would probably make it even more complete.
