Add API Tokens

Last updated on 06 November, 2020


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)
