Your API key is used for the purpose of accessing the reporting data outside the MNTN user interface and through a User Application Protocol that delivers the reporting data in several formats. Typically you will send this API (once copied) to the developer responsible for accessing the MNTN API to make requests to our R2DS data service so that you can embed reporting data into your own applications.
To access the API key, navigate to My Account and select the API tab . . .
Click Copy and you'll see that you've copied the key . . .
Now you can use either your browser or terminal app with any MNTN API request and make sure to include that API Key as part your HTTP request . . .
