Api keys renv

API Keys let us make authenticated requests from the RStudio IDE to Connect.

We are going to add our API credentials to a .Renviron file, making them available to R as environment variables.

  • Navigate to Connect and create and copy your API Key.
  • Return to the RStudio IDE.
  • Use an .Renviron file to set the CONNECT_SERVER and CONNECT_API_KEY environment variables:
    • In the Console, type usethis::edit_r_environ() and press Enter to open your .Renviron for editing.
    • Add the following:
      CONNECT_API_KEY=<paste key value>
    • Save and close the file.
  • Restart R:
    • Mac: Cmd + Shift + F10
    • PC/Linux: Ctrl + Shift + F10
