In this lesson, we’ll learn how to get the API key required to access the endpoints. The API key is a token that a client provides when making API calls.

Create an account

To obtain an API key for Cloudmersive NLP, we’ll need to create an account on the Cloudmersive platform. Use the following steps to retrieve the API key:

  1. Go to the Cloudmersive “Sign Up” page and create an account by filling in all the required fields. A successful sign-up takes us to the onboarding dashboard.
  2. Click the “Account” option from the top right.
  3. On the Management Center, scroll down and click the “Settings” section.
  4. Click the “Verify Email Address” button, then click the “Send Email Verification” button.
  5. Check your inbox for a verification email from Cloudmersive. Open the email and click the “Verify Email Address” button. Once the email is verified, click the “Continue” button to return to the account settings.
  6. Click the “API Keys” option from the sidebar.
  7. Click the “Create Key” button to generate a new API key. This key will be used throughout the course.

These steps are illustrated in the slides below. Some content has been skipped for improved visibility.
