How do I request an Elance API Key?

posted this on September 21, 2010 03:54 PM

The Elance Developer API exposes the power of the Elance system through a simple, Web-based interface that can be called from any application platform. Using the Elance API, you can obtain profile data for Freelancers, search our database of available jobs, and obtain listings of Groups and their members. All that is required is an account on our system, and an API key (available upon request). Our documentation will tell you everything you need to know to begin consuming the API on your development platform of choice.  For more information on Elance API, click here.

Requesting an Elance API Key

To obtain an API key, please log a support ticket with Elance Customer Support with a subject of "New API Key Request." In your support ticket, please include the following information:

  • Project/Application type

  • Project/Application description

  • *Callback URL

Elance will review your request.  We may require additional information.  Once your request is approved, Elance will send the API key.

Note: Please, make sure your contact information in your Elance account is current prior to submitting an API key request.  This step will help avoid delays in processing your request.   

* A Callback URL is required to generate an API key.
