To use HERE Location Services you will need an API key. The API key is a unique identifier that is used to authenticate API requests associated with your project.
You will send the API key with each of your requests.
In this tutorial, you will walk through the signup process for getting a HERE Developer Account and then creating your first API key.
To register for a HERE Developer Account, go to developer.here.com and click on “Sign up”.
If you already have an account, please log in.
After you register and sign in, your landing page should look like this.
If you are not able to see the project, click on the projects link as shown below.
In the image below you’ll see our project is named “Freemium 2020-03-31”. Next, we will select “Freemium 2020-03-31”.
Click on the project to get your credentials page. See the image below.
After generating the App you need to generate API keys. Your screen should look like the image below.
Now click on the
Create API key button to generate the API key.
You can now see the generated API key with the created date and the current status(“Enabled or Disabled”) information. You can manage your API key here by clicking on the “Settings” button on the right of STATUS.
On completing this tutorial you should be able to log in to your HERE Developer Account and generate API keys. Through this portal, you can also generate OAuth keys for different platforms as well. To do this see the OAuth Tutorial.
As a next step, be sure to secure your API Key. See the tutorial on securing API keys with Domain Whitelisting.
