Trying to get an *admin* api key to I can use APIs like /admin/v1/orgs

I'm having trouble finding how to generate an API key as it describes here:


In my organization, I'm not seeing any menus/links called settings.  And when I open the organization in question, I get taken to the admin settings but there doesn't appear to be anywhere to create an API key.  

I've tried creating an API key in my profile but I got a 401.  Here's the curl I used:

curl --location --request GET '' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <my profile generated api key>'

So  the link in the help I mentioned takes you to the list of organizations which doesn't have a Settings option.   And when you click on the organization, it actually takes you to the Site Settings.

So the solution was to click the Back to Organization near the top of the left side bar.  That's where the actual organization settings are.  Not super intuitive but solveable.

Hey @Karim ,

Yes it's a little bit confusing starting from The organization name is actually clickable and will take you directly to the organization settings, but we have seen from a number of customers that this isn't intuitive. We're aware of the issue and are looking at new designs for this page in the future.
