How to create a ConnectWise Manage API Member Key?

Connect your ConnectWise Manage Instance to Propel Your MSP

To connect your ConnectWise Manage instance to Propel Your MSP, you will need the following information:
  1. Your instance's domain name (typically connect.yourcompany.com)
  2. The Company ID identifying your company database in ConnectWise Manage
  3. The Public and Private keys created below

Creating Your Keys

You need to generate ConnectWise Manage API keys so that Propel Your MSP can sync your assets with your ConnectWise Manage installation.
Be sure to make a copy of both the Public and Private Keys because the Private Key will only be displayed once.
  1. Login to your ConnectWise Manage account using the desktop client.
  2. Navigate to  System > Members  and click the API Member tab.
  3. Create a new  API Only Member  (see the minimum required Security  Roles below)
  4. Generate the API Keys.
  5. Save your changes.
  6. Copy the Public and Private API Keys. 

Security

It's a best practice to specify only the minimum security rights required by any third party provider
Security of API Members is based off the Security Roles table within ConnectWise Manage. We suggest creating a new Security Role specifically for the "Propel Your MSP API Member". Propel Your MSP only requires the following Security Modules Levels in ConnectWise Manage:
