API Keys

You can create and manage Application Program Interface (API) keys for each of the Infinity Portal services to automate your configuration and integrate with third-party applications. Each third-party application must receive its own API key.

To create a new API Key:

  1. In the Infinity Portal, go to > API Keys.

  2. From the top toolbar, click New.

    1. In the Create a New API Key window, from the Service tab click the down arrow and select a service.

      For some services, it is necessary to select the applicable Roles.

    2. Optional - In the Expiration tab, enter an expiration date and time for the API key. By default, there is no set expiration.

    3. Optional - In the Description tab, enter a description for the API key.

    4. Click Create.

      The Infinity Portal generates a new API key.

      • Client ID - The Identifier for your account and for the client service that uses this API key.

      • Secret Key - The password to get access to the Check Point Infinity Portal.

      • Authentication URL - Shows the URL address used to authenticate API requests. In addition, it shows the specific gateway that uses this URL to authenticate the Client ID and Secret Key.

    5. To exit and save the API key, click Close.

      Important - You can always obtain the Client ID from the API Keys table, but you cannot retrieve the Secret Key or Authentication URL after the Create a New API Key window is closed.

  3. Click Refresh to see updated information about the API keys. The status of an Active API key shows . When the API key expires, its status automatically changes to Inactive.

To edit an API key's expiration date and description:

  1. In the Infinity Portal, go to > API Keys.

  2. In the API Keys table, select the applicable API key and click Edit.

  3. Make the necessary edits and click Save.

To delete API key(s):
