Enable user to Generate API key

Enable user to Generate API key, so they can use it to develop their own application!

How many users of your community are discourse app developers?

This would probably prove dangerous if someone’s account is compromised.


(Yoginth) #3

800+ Members are app developers. How you are telling this as dangerous, we are recognized devs no one is going to misuse it!


(Bhanu Sharma) #4

Ok! This is an edge case but what if there is someone who that finds some way to do something wrong with discourse and makes a tool that let’s users post their token and then abuses the forum resources?

Then how to remove rate-limit an API for specific user?
