Add API Tokens


You can use LogicMonitor’s REST API to programmatically add API tokens. As with all of our API calls, authentication is required.


URI: /setting/admins/{adminID}/apitokens
(where adminID is the Id of the user for which you’d like to add API tokens; you can get this Id from the Users resource)

Request Parameters: You can POST the following properties for API tokens.

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

Property Description Required? Type
status 1 | 2 – Whether or not the API tokens are enabled, where 2 = enabled. No – defaults to 2 Integer
note The note associated with the API tokens No String


The following Python script adds a set of API tokens for user 32:

#!/bin/env python

import requests
import json
import hashlib
import base64
import time
import hmac

#Account Info
AccessId ='48v2wRzfK94y53sq5EuF'
AccessKey ='H_D9i(f5~B^U36^K6i42=^nS~e75gy382Bf6{)P+'
Company = 'api'

#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
hmac1 =,msg=requestVars.encode(),digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest()
signature = base64.b64encode(hmac1.encode())
# Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + signature.decode() + ':' + epoch
headers = {'Content-Type':'application/json','Authorization':auth}
# Make request
response =, data=data, headers=headers)
# Print status and body of response
print('Response Status:',response.status_code)
print('Response Body:',response.content)
