APP keys for scripted NRT product downloads

by evgeniy_lebed » Sun Dec 27, 2020 6:09 pm America/New_York

Hello everyone,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
I have a question regarding obtaining an APP key for LANCE NRT products to be able to download VIIRS NRT data.
I go to, then in the top right corner I click on "Profile", then "API Keys". I enter some text in the description, and click on "Create New App Key" but it does not look like that any key is generated. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Dear Evgeniy Lebed:
Our web development team has resolved the Appkey issue by transitioning to a new token generation system.

Please note that NRT is no longer allowing the creation of new app keys. Instead, please generate a token for use with your download scripts. This token will be used everywhere the app key are currently used.

The NRT system will not save previously-generated tokens on this page. You are welcome to generate a new token if you lose an old one. Tokens currently do not expire, but NRT may introduce expiration dates in the near future.
