How do I regenerate my Algolia Crawler API Key

Hey there,

My Algolia Crawler API Key have been exposed. Is there any way to regenerate this?

Hi @nikolas ,
You need to go to the “API keys” section of your Algolia dashboard.
After which you would then see an option for regenerating your API keys.

Hey @Harsh,

Thanks but that’s not what I am looking for. I’m looking for regenerating the API key in, which I found is different to the ones in the Algolia Dashboard that you mention.

Ah I see.

In that case you need to go to your “Algolia Crawler Admin Settings”

You will then see a button called “Regenerate”.
Clicking on the “Regenerate” button would then regenerate your Algolia Crawler API key.

The below link from the official Alogolia docs explains this more in depth.

Hope this helps!

Great thanks!

Found it~

Have a nice day, this can be closed

If your Algolia Crawler API Key has been exposed and you believe it may have been compromised, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your account and data. Follow these steps to regenerate your Algolia Crawler API Key:

  1. Access Algolia Dashboard: Log in to your Algolia account and navigate to the Algolia Dashboard.
  2. Select the App: If you have multiple apps, select the app associated with the exposed API Key.
  3. Go to API Keys: In the Algolia Dashboard, find the section or tab labeled “API Keys” or “Security.” Click on it to access the API Keys management page.
  4. Locate the Crawler API Key: Look for the API Key associated specifically with the Algolia Crawler. This API Key is used to authenticate requests made by the crawler.
  5. Revoke the API Key: Once you have identified the Crawler API Key, click on the option to revoke or delete it. This action will immediately invalidate the compromised API Key and prevent any further unauthorized access.
  6. Generate a new API Key: After revoking the exposed API Key, you can generate a new one by following the appropriate steps provided in the Algolia Dashboard. Generate a new Crawler API Key specifically for the crawler to continue functioning properly.
  7. Update your configuration: Make sure to update the API Key in any relevant configurations or integrations where the old key was used. This ensures that the crawler can authenticate and access the necessary resources with the newly generated API Key.
  8. Monitor for suspicious activity: Keep an eye on your Algolia account and any associated logs or notifications for any unusual or unauthorized activity. If you notice anything suspicious, report it to Algolia support immediately.

you can regenerate your Algolia Crawler API Key if it has been exposed. To do this, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Algolia dashboard.
  2. Click on the “API Keys” tab.
  3. Click on the “Crawler API Key” row.
  4. Click on the “Regenerate” button.

Algolia will generate a new API Key for you. You can then use this new API Key to crawl your website.

Unfortunately, my API Key was exposed inadvertently. In light of this exposure, I’m eager to know if there’s a way to regenerate or replace the API Key to ensure the security of my Algolia search operations. Any insights or steps I should follow to resolve this issue would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
