1️⃣ Get your Lacework API Keys

To get started with Lacework, you need to have a Lacework Account to generate API keys :key:


Presumably you already have a Lacework Account, if that’s not the case, reach out to get you set up! And if you happen to be taking your first steps with account set up etc, I’d highly recommend Yulia’s security snippet video!

:warning: For security reasons, only administrators can create API access keys. The limit is 20 per user. An API access key doesn’t expire but can be disabled and deleted.

Generate your API keys
