            How to get the webservice key from PrestaShop?

            The webservice key provides a way to authorize users to access the webservice of PrestaShop. In order to use the webservice in your PrestaShop store, you first need to activate the webservice. 

            Follow the steps bellow to enable the webservice:

            Step 1: Log in to your PrestaShop Back Office. 
            Step 2: In the left menu, click Advanced Parameters (1) > Webservice (2).



            Step 3: In the Configuration section, click YES to enable the webservice. 



            Step 4: Click Save to confirm the change.

            Now that you've done enabling the webservice, follow the steps below to get the webservice key:

            Step 1: Log in to your PrestaShop Back Office. 
            Step 2: In the left menu, click Advanced Parameters > Webservice.
            Step 3: The Webservice section lists any existing webservice key. Select an active one to use. Otherwise, you can create a new webservice key by clicking the Add new webservice key button at the top right of the screen.



            Then, specify the following parameters for the key:



            1. Key: Click the Generate button to generate a random authentication key or enter a unique key (which must be 32 characters long) manually.
            2. Key description: Provide the description regarding the user. The description is not public, but make sure to put all the keywords connected with the user so that you can find their key more quickly.
            3. Status: You can disable any key at any time, but make sure to active your key so that your mobile app can work.
            4. Permissions: Assign permissions for each resource that you want to make available to a certain key. Make sure to only select the permissions needed for the usage of that key. Do not give all the permissions for all resources to any key.
            Step 4: Click Save to confirm the change.
