YouScan's API is available to Insight and Ultra plan subscribers. You can find the documentation here: https://youscan.docs.apiary.io

How much data can I receive through API?
For every topic, you get a monthly volume of:

  • 10,000,000 mentions for Insight subscribers
  • 100,000,000 mentions for Ultra subscribers

A mention that gets requested more than once through an API call counts as a new mention.

Limiting access to certain topics

Each API key is tied to a specific user. This user can only use their own API key to access the topics that they have permission to see

You can check which users have an API key in the Account Settings under Users

💡We recommend creating a special support user account for API work. This allows you to be flexible with your topic permissions

How to create an API key

  1. Log in to YouScan with the credentials of the user who needs an API key. 
  2. Go to My Settings.
  3. In the API Key section, select "Create."

☝️ Remember to copy your key once prompted and save it in a secure space; you cannot view it again.

How to recreate an API key

  1. Log in to YouScan with the credentials of the user who needs to recreate their API key. 
  2. Go to My Settings.
  3. In the API Key section, select "Recreate."
