Generate an API key from Metadefender Core


Learn to create a Metadefender Core rule that applies only to files in MetaDefender Vault by reading Configuring MetaDefender Vault to work with MetaDefender Core.

  1. In Metadefender Core, go to Settings User Management and open Edit page for the administrator or user you want to use.

  2. Generate an API key, copy it and save changes for that user.

  3. In order to make sure that the scanning will be done, you will need to go to Policy → Security Rules and select the rule which will apply to the key.

  4. Open/Edit the rule and go to 'Restrict access to following roles' and set to 'Administrators' or any role you have your user from step 1 set under.

  5. Save Changes.
