Multiple API keys per DataSift user

Currently my DataSift user account is only allowed one API key. It would be nice to allow my user account to have multiple API keys. We have many environments in which we test datasift and it would be helpful not to pollute our production stream with testing accounts. Similarly, trying to run those tests could potentially exhaust our API limits which would b0rk our production application.

Thanks for the feature request Evan. Multiple API keys is something that is currently under consideration for our product backlog. Just to clarify; are you saying that having separate DataSift user accounts for testing (with their own API keys and limits) causes problems for you?

Well, we don't have multiple datasift accounts, so no, that is not a problem for us currently. We're not having any issues with multiple environments and a single user.

Are you guys giving thought to having separate limits for each API key? That's really the key feature that I'd be pushing for. If we could partition our monthly allotment of credits between a set of multiple API keys that would be fantastic! Thanks for the update.

Hi Evan, independant rate limits for each API key would most likely be introduced as part of this proposed feature, though as Chris said; this is still under consideration.
In the meantime, you may be able to speak to your DataSift Account Manager and have a separate DataSift account set up that you can use exclusively in a test environment.
