Create a new API Key.

API key names may only contain underscores and alphanumeric characters. WarpStream will assign the provided name to the new key after adding an akn_ prefix.

Create requests must provide a list of access grants to associate with the new key. For simplicity we recommend assigning each key a single access grant.

An access grant is an object with three fields: principal_kind, resource_kind, and resource_id. They are subject to the following restrictions.

  • principal_kind may be application or agent. These correspond to application keys and agent keys respectively.

  • resource_kind may be * or virtual_cluster. For now, * is only supported for grants with principal kind application. virtual_cluster is only supported for grants with principal kind agent.

  • resource_id: may be * or one of your virtual cluster IDs. Agent keys may be granted access to a single virtual cluster via its ID, or to all virtual clusters in your account by setting this field to *.
