Admin user only

Only an Admin user with All access to financial information can generate the API Token. Before you take on the following steps, please make sure you have the right level of permission.

Use your test account

Runn has a neat feature called the "Test Account," which allows you to safely experiment on a copy of your Runn account.

We strongly recommend testing the integration in your test account first. If anything goes wrong in the integration, you can reload the data and test again, while all the data in your live account remain intact.

Switch to your test account

  1. Click on your profile icon in the top-right corner

  2. Selecting Switch to test account

  3. Copy live data on the top purple banner to copy all the data from your live account into your test account.

Getting your Runn API Key

  1. Click on your profile icon in the top-right corner

  2. ClickSettings

  3. Click API

You should see your API Token displayed on the page. If you don't, simply click the Generate button. You can tell the API key is for your test account because it will start with TEST_.

If you want to use this script in production all you need to do is to switch back to your live Runn account and copy the API key from the settings page. You will know you are using a production API key if it starts with LIVE_.
