titleAPI keys & developer accounts in a nutshell
  • If you want to access the standard resources of the MailUp REST API, you need a pair of API keys.
  • First get the API keys from the Settings > Advanced settings > Developer's corner > API keys page. If this page is not accessible to your admin account, you may activate request a separate developer account to perform this task.
  • Then access to MailUp REST API by specifying both the API keys and the MailUp account credentials (Authenticating with OAuth v2)


Update Nov 2017: API keys can be created through the main account, so the activation of a developer account is no more mandatory. You have to activate it only if you really need it (see use cases belowat the bottom of this page).

  2. After pressing "New keys", you will be asked to specify the following 
    1. the application name (very important in case of connectors you want to share with others)
    2. the application description (i.e. its purpose, mandatory for featured apps in the integrations catalog)
    3. the developer name (the name or the email address of a reference person)

**If you have a whitelabel account, you won't have access to this page. In this case you must request a "developer" MailUp account and get the keys using it. As stated in the previous paragraph, API keys are not tied to a specific MailUp account, so you are free to use them with an account that is not the one you used to create them
