Cannot see my API key

Hello all, I am new to SAP world. I wanted to explore the API for integration with my web application. I created a SAP API Business hub profile. When I try to get my API key, (Button: Show API Key), I am getting the message "We cannot display the key. Please try again later". Any help on this will be appreciated.

Regards,

Jeo

Welcome Jeo and thanks for visiting SAP Community to get answers to your questions. Since you're new, I recommend having a look at our Q&A tutorial at: https://developers.sap.com/tutorials/community-qa.html, as it provides tips for preparing questions that draw responses from our members.
For example, you can:
- outline what steps you took to find answers (and why they weren't helpful)
- share screenshots of what you've seen/done
- make sure you've applied the appropriate tags
The more details you provide, the more likely it is that members will be able to help you. Should you wish, you can revise your question by selecting Actions, then Edit.

I'm having the exact same issue and Google gives no answers on how to resolve this. Even with what Denys suggested gives me the same issue, so you're not alone with this. Did you ever find out what the issue was, or are you still stuck where you left?

Kind regards,
Jussi

Hi all,
I just signed up today to SAP API Business Hub and experiencing the same problem/error message:

We cannot display the key. Please try again later.

Tried several times later, but it does not work. Is it a timing problem? Has anyone experience how long "later" should be?

Best regards,

Marcel

It seems like the API Keys are provisioned with a delay. Login in api.sap.com with an S-user (Types Partner or Customer) or a P-user, click "Show API Key". If you never logged into api.sap.com before, then there's the error "We cannot display the key. Please try again later". api.sap.com needs some time to generate the key. Wait for a couple of days and try again.

vladimir_latyshenko , I checked the user type - it is a P-user. Does it mean, that I am at a dead end? 😞

Marcel! You need to wait for a couple of days for the key.
