Keep getting Invalid API key for Windy.com. **solved**

Post by wdg »

For some reason, Meteobridge keeps saying I have an invalid API key for windy.com. I've created new keys, but each one is reported as invalid on the Weather Nets page. Any ideas what may be going on?

The Windy API key is very very long. Maybe you are not copying the entire thing? I suggest using the copy icon on the Windy station settings page. Then you can paste the whole thing into your Meteobridge configuration. There is no need to mask the Windy API key....because you can't display the whole thing.

As you can see I don't have to mask my API key ....because that is only but a very small part (about 40 characters) of the whole thing which is in my case 121 characters.

Wow, my API key is only 33 characters long. What is the URL where you access your keys? Mine is:

https://api.windy.com/keys

The correct page to access to your station upload key is:
https://stations.windy.com/stations

You were going to the API for other things like forecast API and Webcam API...etc.
