APIError(code=-2014): API-key format invalid.

Hello developers!

I am new (so be kind), and while i was writing my code to connect to the API test i had this error. APIError(code=-2014): API-key format invalid.

Searching on GitHub and Stackoverflow i didnt find nothing.

Can anyone help me to fix this issue?

# Importing libraries 
from binance.client import Client
import configparser

# Loading keys from config file
config = configparser.ConfigParser()
config.read_file(open(r'C:\\*mypath*\\secret.cfg'))
test_api_key = config.get('BINANCE', 'TEST_API_KEY')
test_secret_key = config.get('BINANCE', 'TEST_SECRET_KEY')

client = Client(test_api_key, test_secret_key)

client.API_URL = 'https://testnet.binance.vision/api'  # To change endpoint URL for test account  

info = client.get_account()  # Getting account info

print(info)

The only possible reason is you failed to get correct key/secret to your two vars

In my Cfg file I just wrote this lines of code

[BINANCE]

TEST_API_KEY= my key
TEST_SECRET_KEY = my secret

This works just fine to me. You might want to check if your key/secret are correct

Ok lemme try to regen my keys

Still having the same problem

and how can I define it? there is documentation somewhere?

You didn’t define client object…

What happened to below lines that you included at first?

client = Client(test_api_key, test_secret_key)

client.API_URL = ‘https://testnet.binance.vision/api’ # To change endpoint URL for test account

info = client.get_account() # Getting account info

I figure out that visual studio code was broken, i tried this script on a different program (like spyder) and works fine.

Thanks

How is possible that on Spyder my code works but it does not in Visual Studio Code?

i edited with your suggestion

now i have this problem

We’re 100 miles away from API usage question already…

I faced the same issue, and the problem was that I was adding single quotes on each of the keys. Removing them made it work (even in VS Code).
Hope this helps.
