Embedded Job API Keys are Now Available

Streamline your automation and secure your workflows with our new Embedded Job API Keys.

Key Features:

  • Embedded API Key Injection: Jobs are now automatically assigned a unique, short-lived API key, accessible via the environment variable RESCALE_API_KEY.
  • Automation Enhancement: The introduction of automated API key management simplifies job chaining, fan-out, and orchestration processes.
  • Security Optimization: Post-job completion, the API key expires, minimizing security vulnerabilities in environments with shared jobs.


  • Enhanced Security: The automated handling of API keys diminishes the risks associated with manual management and shared job environments.
  • Operational Efficiency: This feature streamlines the integration of API keys into your workflows, saving valuable time and resources.
  • Improved User Experience: Setting up automated workflows is now more straightforward, providing a safer and more efficient way for users to manage computational pipelines and job orchestration.

Who’s Impacted?

End users engaged in computational pipelines and utilizing post-processing scripts for job automation.

Getting Started:

To use this functionality, simply replace your API key in scripts with RESCALE_API_KEY. Testing the environment variable can be done by executing “echo $RESCALE_API_KEY” in the job CLI or by checking API keys within the User Profile Settings.
