I registered. How do I create an API Key?


I just registered. Verified my account. However, the API Credentials page doesn't have a way for me to create an application.

Also, on this page: https://developer.oxforddictionaries.com/documentation/getting_started
The "You can find your API keys on app description page." link doesn't go anywhere.

    I think I figured out a workaround.

    This is the API Credentials link in the header resolves to https://developer.oxforddictionaries.com/admin/applications

    If you cut off /applications from the URL, I could create an application.

    Hi @keystoneworks
    Sorry I've only seen this now! - you question came in just after I had left for the weekend.
    Thanks for flagging this up.

    You were on the right track, if you go to 'API credentials' you should see a link with your name, which will take you to your account, where you can get your API key and ID. Is this still broken?

    I checked the links from my end, they seem to be working for me - but let me know if they are still not working for you, so I can investigate more.

    Also, as you are just getting started, you might be interested in our upcoming webinar, which is about making the most of the API. It will cover the basics, and how to create a simple app (and of course you can ask questions!).

    There is more information here, where you can also register for it.

    And of course, do let me know if you need any more help!
