    Your API key is now available in the settings:


  3. Your API key is ready for use in the EdiNation Web EDI Translator. To use the API key to access the EdiNation API, set it as an HTTP header parameter:

    Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key = {Your API key}

You can also access your API key or generate a new one, if you have to, from the developer portal.


View EdiNation Usage Data

Every plan comes with a quota that defines how many API calls you are allowed for the duration of your term when throttling kicks in and what happens after you've reached your quota limits.

Every request to our API is measured as an API call. Upon reaching the quota limit and depending on your plan, any subsequent API calls will either fail (for plans without overage) or incur an overage fee per API call (as specified in the plan).

We alert developers via email when they are approaching 85% of their quota limit and have reached 100% of their quota limit.

The quota period starts at the time of your subscription and ends after the specified number of days according to your plan (usually 30 days) from that time.

Web EDI Translator uses two API calls every time you click any of the translation buttons, one API call for translation and one API call for validation.

The quota is shared between EDI API and Web EDI Translator when they are used with the same API key.

To view your usage data, log in to the developer portal and select the "Reports" menu:
