Sabnzbd API Key


Almost all third party applications that work with Sabnzbd require Sabnzbd’s API Keys. There are two types of API key for Sabnzbd:

  • API Key – Gives a program full control of Sabnzbd
  • NZB Key – Only allows a program to send a nzb to Sabnzbd

I usually end up using the API key for my third party programs, as they have advance features such as download monitoring, download speed setting, history, and more.

1. To grab your API key navigate to your Sabnzbd. Click “Config”, then click “General.”

Thats it! Now you can go paste your API key into any of the third party apps you wish to use.
