Request API Key

To obtain API credentials simply select the REQUEST API KEY menu option and provide the required information. You will receive an email that contains a  username and password, as well as a link for the required change of the initial temporary password.

The username and password are used as a Basic Authentication token to access test datasets via the FINRA Data API platform. See the Authorization topic for more information.


  1. The username is the API Client in the Basic Authentication token.
  2. The password is the API Secret in the Basic Authentication token.
  3. The API Key can only be used to access TEST data. You will need to go through the production provisioning process to obtain credentials that have access to production data.
