Same API Key for different programs


We have multiple programs that consume your API. Some programs will run several times a day. Should we create separate API keys for different programs? Or it doesnt matter that multiple programs running at the same time are using the same API? Because we did notice that two programs running at the same time with API keys caused some performance issues. POST and GET requests were slower than usual.

Thank you,

There is no requirement to use multiple API keys. Different keys might be useful since timeline comments will show the name of the key, allowing you to know which script took an action.

There should be no performance impact by using the same keys for multiple scripts. However, running multiple scripts simultaneously, regardless of the keys, might degrade performance.
