Liquid Web’s Account Management System has a robust API that allows for accessing your account from outside of the Manage interface. For example, the API can be used to integrate WHMCS directly to your Liquid Web account. To access the API, an API user must first be created for that account.
Creating a Liquid Web API User
Creating an API user is an easy and straightforward process. The first step is to login to your Manage account, once you’ve logged in we’ll get started.
- Open the “Account” section of manage.
Click on the the “Account” option along the left hand side.
- Go to the “Users” tab of the Account section.
Now in the Account section, click on the User Tab along the top.
This will bring you to the users page, which allows you to create an API user by click on the “Create API User” button.
- Create your first API user
Now click the “Create API User” button. This will bring up the API user creation form. Manage will not allow you to use a username that is already in use, and will give a warning if you enter in a username that is already created. It is also recommended that you give the new API user a unique password.
Once you have entered the information, click the “Save User” button.
- Confirm the user creation!
After you hit ‘Save User’ a confirmation dialogue will appear. As mentioned in the dialogue, once created an API user cannot be deleted, only deactivated. Accepting the dialogue creates the account. Once created, you can now login to the API via that user.
That’s it, you now have a Liquid Web API user for your account. This API user can be used for integrating your Liquid Web account with a WHMCS installation, or you can build your own tools that use it! To learn more about the Liquid Web API read the API docs here.
