Add API Tokens

You can use LogicMonitor's REST API to programmatically add API Tokens.

Note: 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.

You can POST the following properties for API Tokens:

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





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
signature = base64.b64encode(,msg=requestVars,digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest())

#Construct headers
auth = 'LMv1 ' + AccessId + ':' + signature + ':' + 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
