Understanding Your API Key

There's a great new post on the dev blog regarding your API key. Many new players don't understand what the Limited and Full API keys are. Please read the post. I am including a list of what each key allows access to below. Please read the entire post here.

  • Limited
    • Character sheet
    • Skill queue
    • Factional Warfare Statistics
    • Standings
  • Full
    • Everything that the limited key can access
    • A full list of everything you own
    • The status of your account(Disabled, paid for, when it's paid until)
    • Your wallet journal and transaction list
    • All your mails and the content of them
    • Your contact list
    • Corporation data which you have access to through your roles
Fly smart.

  2. Np, happy to help! Yeah, it's a little scary that someone could read all your EVEmails if they had your full API. I'm glad I haven't given mine out to anyone.

    For anyone who may not know, if you want to change your API you can do so at http://www.eveonline.com/api/
