Can I create additional / child tokens under my account?

Yes, Diffbot supports multiple tokens/API keys for a single account. While your initial token will remain your “primary” token, additional “child” tokens can be generated and used instead.

If you would like one or more additional child tokens:

  • If you are a Plus plan user or above and have access to our beta Developer Dashboard, you can create child tokens from the “API Keys” page under “My Account.
  • You may also write support@diffbot.com to request additional tokens.

Notes on Child Tokens:

  1. Child tokens have the same access rights as your primary token and can be used equally across all Diffbot extraction APIs
  2. Child tokens will have their own separate set of custom rules. Rules are not currently shared among tokens.
  3. Child tokens will have their own separate crawls and/or bulk jobs. These jobs are not currently shared among tokens.
  4. Child token usage will be counted toward monthly or annual billing usage.
