API Keys API C++ Client Library

An idiomatic C++ client library for the API Keys API, a service to manage the API keys associated with developer projects.

While this library is GA, please note Google Cloud C++ client libraries do not follow Semantic Versioning.


The following shows the code that you'll run in the google/cloud/apikeys/quickstart/ directory, which should give you a taste of the API Keys API C++ client library API.

#include "google/cloud/apikeys/v2/api_keys_client.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) try {
  if (argc != 2) {
    std::cerr << "Usage: " << argv[0] << " project-id\n";
    return 1;

  namespace apikeys = ::google::cloud::apikeys_v2;
  auto client = apikeys::ApiKeysClient(apikeys::MakeApiKeysConnection());

  auto const parent = std::string{"projects/"} + argv[1] + "/locations/global";
  for (auto r : client.ListKeys(parent)) {
    if (!r) throw std::move(r).status();
    std::cout << r->DebugString() << "\n";

  return 0;
} catch (google::cloud::Status const& status) {
  std::cerr << "google::cloud::Status thrown: " << status << "\n";
  return 1;

Main classes

The main class in this library is apikeys_v2::ApiKeysClient. All RPCs are exposed as member functions of this class. Other classes provide helpers, configuration parameters, and infrastructure to mock apikeys_v2::ApiKeysClient when testing your application.
