Obtain a new Key

A key is necessary to send logs over the logging pipeline. For more information about the purpose of a pipeline key, see Log Security.


  • IONOS adheres to a Share Once policy to generate a key; there is no alternative method to retrieve it if lost. Hence, we recommend that you secure the generated key.

  • The previous key is instantly revoked when you generate a new key for a specific pipeline.


To get a new key for a pipeline, you can use the following request. Remember to replace the {pipelineID} with a valid ID of a pipeline to access its key.

curl --location
--request POST 'https://logging.de-txl.ionos.com/pipelines/{pipelineID}/key' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN'


The response contains the key necessary to configure the Shared_Key in Fluent Bit.

  "key": "key123"
