Description: This solution presents instructions on obtaining your Stripe API credentials

Environment: All

Versions: All

Answer:


In order to connect Omatic Cloud to Stripe, you will need the following information:

  • API Secret Key


Please DO NOT SHARE this information with our implementation team; simply have it readily accessible in preparation for implementation.




Please follow the instructions outlined to obtain your Stripe API credentials:


1. Login to Stripe. You can find your API keys using the "developers" button on the top right menu of your dashboard.  



NOTE: if you don't have an administrator or developer role, you might not have access to view your API keys in the Dashboard. Contact your Stripe account's owner and ask to be added to their team as a developer. 





2. Click on "API Keys" on the left side menu.


3. Here you will find the "Secret Key" in the Standard Keys section.


     Please note that Stripe can run in Live mode and Test mode. You can switch between the two modes by switching the "Test Mode" button on the Stripe dashboard. The test api key is prefixed with "sk_test_" while the live api key has "sk_live_". 





4. Copy your Secret key to use in Omatic Cloud. Please note that in live mode, new secret keys are only visible the first time you access them. After that, the Dashboard redacts the API key.  More details about your Stripe API keys and how to recover a lost secret key can be found here
