We are now in the process of leaving the beta phase for our Core API.
If you have beta API keys, you'll need to upgrade them to production keys in order to avoid an interruption in service. To help with this, we have developed a 3-step upgrade path for our beta key users.
Please note: This step is only necessary if you don't see your beta key in your API Dashboard.
This step will migrate your beta keys into your RANDOM.ORG account, such that you can manage them via our new API Dashboard. Migrating a beta key will not change your key or its daily limits, and it will not cause any interruption in service.
The API Dashboard looks like the following:
To migrate a beta key such that it appears in the API Dashboard, please do the following:
Please note that your RANDOM.ORG account can hold a maximum of ten API keys at this time. If you need more, please send us an email.
While production keys will work with Release 1 of the API, we recommend that you upgrade your clients to use Release 2 or later.
If you are still using Release 1, you can switch to Release 4 by changing the URL endpoint in your client from the following:
To the following:
For the vast majority of clients, no further changes should be required.
For full details about the differences between the two releases, please see the Release 2 API documentation.
The final step is to convert your key to a production key. To do this, you first need to decide which license is right for you. You will find the list of licenses on our Pricing Page.
Once you have decided on a license, open your your API Dashboard and click on the beta key you wish to convert. In the resulting view, you will see a button labeled ‘Convert to Production Key.’
Clicking on the button will open the conversion modal, which you see below.
To proceed, select the desired license from the dropdown menu, then check each box after you have made sure you understand what it means. Finally, submit the form to complete the conversion of your key.
Once your key has been converted, you can return to the API Dashboard to confirm that everything looks as expected.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch, if you have questions about the conversion process.
