How to generate a api_key_secret code?

Hello @Shivam_Tripathi_KS,

The api_key_secret is set by the admin in the file. The secret key ensures that a malicious user can not guess API Tokens.

You can generate it any way you’d like. Having a long random string is good. It’s possible you may be thinking of WordPress, which generate a bunch of “salts” (unique keys) for you? Something along those lines might be appropriate.
