Cannot create Personal API Keys via NerdGraph API explorer

Hi there,

I’m following this document:

https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/apis/get-started/intro-apis/types-new-relic-api-keys#personal-api-key

Create personal API keys via NerdGraph API explorer

To generate an API key for a user from the NerdGraph API explorer:

  1. Navigate to api.newrelic.com/graphiql and sign in if prompted.
  2. Click the “API keys” dropdown.
  3. Under “Create a new API key” , select an account.

I can’t see the account under “Create a new API key”. See below.

Please advise.

@tncla Sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue. I have reached out to our account management team to get their help. You should receive an email from them soon :slight_smile:

It turns out that I had to use the EU weblink instead of the US one (it was not mentioned in the documentation though). The problem has now been solved, thank you.

I am running into the same issue, can you elaborate? Maybe with screenshots? I am not sure what the EU weblink is.

My account is in the EU data center (https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/using-new-relic/welcome-new-relic/get-started/our-eu-us-region-data-centers) and, as such, I had to use the EU instance of NerdGraph found here:

https://api.eu.newrelic.com/graphiql

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks @tncla for your answer. That indeed solves the problem for me.

@JoiConverse could this maybe be updated in the documentation? The experience is otherwise rather frustrating.

@dschridde Great to hear this has been solved for you. I’ll share with our docs team. Thanks @tncla :slight_smile:

I just checked and there is still at least one page which does not mention the different instance for EU customers: https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/apis/nerdgraph/get-started/introduction-new-relic-nerdgraph#authentication

For the New Relic Terraform provider I submitted a pull request: https://github.com/newrelic/terraform-provider-newrelic/pull/1035
