To develop applications using HERE Location Services, you need to authenticate your application. HERE APIs accepts requests only from authorized applications. API Authentication can ve done via API Keys or via OAuth credentials.
Please note: Your API key is not yet secured. Rotate the API Keys regularly and use Trusted domains for additional security.
In this tutorial, we will walk through the sign-up process to get a HERE platform account and then create your first API key.
Follow the four steps for sign-up. No credit card is required for the Base plan.
If you already have an account, click Sign in instead.
You can now see the generated API key with the created date and the current status (“Enabled or Disabled”) information. You can Delete or Disable your API key by clicking on the three dots on right of STATUS.
On completing this tutorial you should be able to log in to your HERE platform portal and generate API keys. Through this portal, you can also generate OAuth credentials. You can find tutorial for OAuth 2.0 Tokens.
As a next step, be sure to secure your API Key. See the tutorial on securing API keys with Trusted Domains.
