This section contains documentation specific to requesting and managing API keys.


API keys are unique alphanumeric values used to identify an application making API requests. API keys allow us to provide API usage metrics and allow our clients to control access to their data at any time.

In the example below, 84yf8i394hg8e4h3idnmdifvu3n is an API key.

  GET /psi/v1/data HTTP/1.1
  X-Bazaarvoice-Passkey: 84yf8i394hg8e4h3idnmdifvu3n
  X-Bazaarvoice-Signature: f9738e351cb8269b67819
  X-Bazaarvoice-Timestamp: 1502818736645

To use the Product Sentiment Insights API a developer must request an API key, which will be issued in a pending state until the key has been approved. This process is summarized below:

  1. Developer requests keys through the Developer Tools available on the Bazaarvoice Portal
  2. Client key administrator enables or disables keys using the Developer Tools available on the Bazaarvoice Portal
