There are occasionally times where the API keys you've linked to Shrimpy need to be updated. This can be because of an API upgrade, a data breach, requiring additional permissions, adding IP Whitelisting, the list goes on.
This help article will walk you through the process of updating your API Keys within Shrimpy. By using the "Update Keys" feature rather than our "Delete Keys" feature, you ensure that you retain all of the data within our system that is tied to your API keys.
First, you need to create a new set of API keys on your exchange account. You can find a list of help articles that cover generating API keys on each of the exchanges we support here.
Once you have your new set of API Keys...
Go to Settings -> Accounts and select "Edit" for the exchange account you wish to update.
Do not select "Delete" as that is essentially a factory reset and you will lose all data including trade/balance history, performance, cold storage balances, etc.
At this point, you will need to enter your public and secret API Keys. Once you've done so, you will be able to select "Save". This will replace your old keys and keep all of your historical data. You can then exit out of this dialog and continue using Shrimpy as normal.
