Development Environment Setupdevelopment-environment-setup

Get up and running with our Client libraries and start developing your Telnyx integration.

Integrating Telnyx into your app or website can begin as soon as you create a Telnyx account, requiring only two steps:

  1. 1Obtain your API key so Telnyx can authenticate your integration’s API requests
  2. 2Install a Client library so your integration can interact with the Telnyx API

Step 1: Obtain your API keysstep-1--obtain-your-api-keys

Telnyx authenticates your API requests using your account’s API Key. If you do not include your key when making an API request, or use one that is incorrect or outdated, Telnyx returns an error.

Your API Keys are available in the "Auth"PORTAL section of the Portal. Once you create an API Key you must save it for future use. You will only see your API Key once, on creation.

We include YOUR_API_KEY in our code examples. Replace this text with your own API Key.

If you cannot see your API keys in the Portal, this means you do not have access to them. Only Telnyx account owners can access API Keys.
