The Microsoft Tag Key Manager is a self-service tool that allows you to request and receive API keys for our Creation and Scan Data APIs. It also allows you to request a trial key for our Scanning SDK.
To access the Key Manager, log in using your Windows Live ID account. You will be able to request API keys for either the Creation or Scan Data APIs and a trial key for our Scanning SDK. You will also be able to view any existing keys.
The Creation API key can be used to batch create up to 5,000 Tag barcodes, QR Codes, or NFC URLs. Read more about the Creation API.
The Scan Data API key can be used to export scan data and allow it to be viewed in third-party reporting tools. You can also use the key to access our Tag Dashboard, which displays canned scan data reports. The Dashboard is a helpful solution when your organization doesn’t use third-party reporting tools.
