Advanced Setup (Manual Configuration)

For those who want to also configure your own providers whether that is to add your own API keys or if you have purchased additional plans with Uniblock.

4. Configure Providers:

  • Add and manage various providers. Click the blue button on the top right to bring up a list of providers. Depending on your project's needs, you may choose to integrate with one or multiple providers.

5. API Key Configuration:

  • Custom API Key (Manual Configuration):
    • Obtain a custom API key from your chosen provider(s).
    • Provider Configuration Guides are available on our docs as well.
    • Apply this key and a name and then configure.
  • API Test Key (Default Routing):
    • Alternatively, you can use Uniblock's test API key for testing.
    • Note: This is not recommended for production environments due to shared access constraints.
