I posted before in a different thread, but it was never approved and I never got a response.

My key is also not working. I had a key, but started receiving a 403, so I tried regenerating it here and am still receiving a 403.

If this doesn't clear up, I'm going to have to go back to the Google Maps version of my code. I would like to stick to Mapquest though. Please help.

Hi Colin, the key under your colin.1 login works great for me in the geocoder. Can you post a request that is failing along with the text of the error response?

Thanks for the response. I'm just trying to include the MQA toolkit via a script tag using my key: //open.mapquestapi.com/sdk/js/v7.2.s/mqa.toolkit.js?key=MY_KEY

I tried doing the same with the geocoder example from the documentation and am also getting a 403: //www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=MY_KEY&location=Lancaster,P...

Just in case it's not obvious, "MY_KEY" is replaced with the key listed as "Consumer Key" in my profile on here. I apologize if there's something obviously wrong with this, but this worked in the past with my old key.

Old key not working under new App Plans

Looks like I'm having the same problem. I have a legacy ("F) API Key that no longer works. My profile shows I have no plans, but I cannot select the free plan. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I am also having trouble managing my app API keys. Would you please review my account?

API Key

My key isn't working with the Traffic API.  I get HTTP 500 errors for flow requests, and for incidents (etc) I get 403 "This key is not authorized for this service. If you do not have a key, you can obtain a free key by registering at http://developer.mapquest.com.".  Nonetheless these requests appear to be counting in my transaction report.

Under Keys & Reporting, the one app I have shows up twice, and when expanding them, the top one doesn't show the key, but the bottom one does...

I thought perhaps maybe create a new key, but under Keys & Reporting, there is no green button for creating a new key like some posts in this thread indicate.

Thank you -


MQBrianCoakley
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry for the inconvenience. We made an account change. Are you able to create a new key now?   The 403 error has been forwarded on to the development team to assess.

There is no change in the Keys & Reporting section for me, i.e. no new buttons for creating keys.. I've looked in both IE 11 and Chrome 49.

Also no change in my application - no traffic flow or incidents...same errors...

You account is an older one.
You account is an older one. I updated it so you should be able to create a new key now. But I haven't heard anything yet about why the key doesn't work in the traffic api.

If all you need is the route distance between two locations, I recommend the route matrix which only returns route time and distance.
