API key

I have an account in ThemeForest and I want to generate an API key for WordPress theme, but I haven’t found “API KEY” link under my account -> settings. Is there a different kind of account type?

You can generate Envato API personal token here . Please make sure you set required Token permissions. It may prompt you to sign into your Envato account

Before you create a new token the following 3 permissions should be selected from the list of permission available on the Token page.

  1. View and search Envato sites (checked by default)
  2. Download the user’s purchased items
  3. List purchases the user has made

Hope this will help you.


API keys from the Market sites are the old, deprecated way of managing API keys. You should now be following @msgcoder’s advice and using https://build.envato.com. While there shouldn’t be themes/plugins that still use the old keys, please reach out to the author’s support channels if they are as they are using no longer available functionality and will need to update it.
