Keep your API key safe
Your API key gives access to your DOcplexcloud account. You should keep it safe.
Be careful not to expose the key publicly, for example in a screenshot or a video.
Moreover, don’t transmit the key using e-mail.
Note that you can monitor your jobs in progress in DropSolve and see details of finished jobs for the last four months in your usage history. For each job you can identify the API key used for the job (only part of the key is visible). To access DropSolve and the Usage History page you must be signed into the DOcplexcloud website. Use the account menu (upper right corner) to access the Usage History page.
