Auth API | Honeycomb

Auth API

API keys can have various permissions and belong to a specific Environment. This endpoint can be used to validate authentication for a key, to determine what authorizations have been granted to a key, and to determine the Team and Environment that a key belongs to.

In Honeycomb Classic, API keys are scoped to all dataset and data in the Classic section.


The only expected header is X-Honeycomb-Team, which is your API key. It is required. Learn more about API Keys.

Example Auth Request 

curl \
    -X GET \
    -H "X-Honeycomb-Team: YOUR_API_KEY"

The list of keys in the api_key_access object are subject to change as API features and capabilities are added and enhanced.
