What is the API key and when do I need it?

Note: If you find certain limitations to the API key, please contact us.

The API key is a secret token that is used to identify the origin of a request. Each 123FormBuilder account has an API key that can be found in the My AccountAccount Details section. In case you cannot find it, you’ll need to generate it by pressing the Create now button.

123FormBuilder what is the API Key

You need this API Key in three main situations:

1. When you want to publish your forms on certain platforms, such as WordPress, Joomla or the number of API calls that you can use in a day is very important.


  1. Is there anyway to make it so that the fields that are clicked on my employee forms update my quick books client accounts so I don’t have to enter it manually? Could it automatically enter charges from my reoccurring charges list on QuickBooks?

  2. Dears,

    I would like to use your form to submit the information to an external API.

    How can I do so?



    1. Hello Patrick!

      Have a look in our API documentation section and see if any you can find your answer there. Your account has an API key which you can use for external operations, such as retrieving form submissions from 123FormBuilder to your own database.
