Adding API Tokens

Last updated on 11 January, 2024

You can use LogicMonitor REST API v3 to add API tokens. You must authenticate yourself before making the API request.

Note: Although all POST parameters are optional for this resource, an empty payload still needs to include a set of curly braces {}.

URI: POST /setting/admins/{adminID}/apitokens

adminIDInteger(Mandatory) The ID of the user for which you want to add API token.
typeStringThe default value is API token.
noteStringNote associated with the API token. Example – “note“:”John Doe’s API Token”
statusIntegerIndicates whether or not the API token is enabled. Accepted values are 1 and 2 where 1 indicates disabled and 2 indicates enabled.

The following Python script adds a set of API tokens for user with ID 32.

#!/bin/env python
import requests
import json
import hashlib
import base64
import time
import hmac
import getpass
#Account Info: LogicMonitor recommends to NEVER hardcode the credentials. Instead, retrieve the values from a secure storage.
#Note: The below is provided for illustration purposes only.
AccessId = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessId: ")
AccessKey = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessKey: ")
Company = 'apiAccount'  

#Request Info
httpVerb ='POST'
resourcePath = '/setting/admins/32/apitokens'
queryParams =''
data = '{}'

#Construct URL 
url = 'https://'+ Company +'' + resourcePath + queryParams

#Get current time in milliseconds
epoch = str(int(time.time() * 1000))

#Concatenate Request details
requestVars = httpVerb + epoch + data + resourcePath

#Construct signature
digest =
signature = base64.b64encode(digest.encode('utf-8')).decode('utf-8')     

#Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + str(signature) + ':' + epoch
headers = {'Content-Type':'application/json','Authorization':auth,'X-Version':3}   

# Make request
response =, data=data, headers=headers)
# Print status and body of response
print('Response Status:',response.status_code)
print('Response Body:',response.content)
