API Key Authentication Process

Before you get started with PandaDoc API, make sure you’re on the right plan.

You can test it out with the Sandbox key on the Business, Enterprise, and API plans. The Production API key is only available on the Enterprise, and API plans.

To access the API, go to the Developer Dashboard page and generate either a Sandbox or a Production key.


Generate the API key on the Configuration page of your Developer Dashboard.

Use this API key as an Authorization header in this format: API-Key {{api_key}} for all your API requests.
