Maps API for JavaScript Developer's Guide

Acquiring Credentials

All users of the HERE JavaScript API (JSLA) must obtain an API Key to effect authentication and authorization when communicating with the backend services. The API Key is assigned per application. You need to have signed in and have chosen a plan (for instance, Freemium). You can get pricing information and sign up here: http://developer.here.com/plans.

To generate an API Key:

  1. Log into your account.
  2. From the menu, click Projects.
  3. On the Project Details page, go to the Javascript box, click Generate App, and then click Create a new API Key. You can create a whitelist of domains for which your app credentials are valid. You can disable or delete your API Key from the menu.
  4. Copy the API Key and insert it into your API in the designated place.
