UserID and KeyID with New API Keys

Hello, I'm really just learning about this stuff, but I'm trying to pass a new API key I made to test APIKeyInfo.xml.aspx to see if an API key is for one character or the full account.

I keep getting an authentication error (203) when I send the above. I'm not sure if I'm using the wrong KeyID or what.

On the Your API Keys webpage, I'm using the ID as the KeyID and the Verification Code as the API Key. Is that correct? or should I be using a UserID (though I can't find it on that page at all).

First off, change your vCode now that you've given it out to everyone.

This is the correct format:

Forget userID and apikey, they mean nothing now. userid no longer exist and apikey refers to the key pair of both keyID and vCode.

This will be a character type key, in the xml it will output after you fix yoru parameters, you'll see a type='Character' , if it where an account key, it would say type='Account'. Select 'All' in the dropdown box for type when creating a key.

FYI, I hate the new forums because its slow to type a reply and it doesn't like xml, syas its html and I type this 3 times now

Thank you.. is a very limited vCode.. will expire tomorrow, and doesn't tell anything more than a simple evegate search of my character name.
