Hello,

There's a small undocumented feature in the new API system.

We heard that people wanted an easier way on mobile phones to install API keys. So we now have a way to show a button for each key, which you can listen for when is clicked and it will redirect to an URL which contains the key.

To use this, you have to use this URL:
https://support.eveonline.com/api/Key/ActivateInstallLinks

This will set your cookie to show the install link. If you want to set this cookie manually, you need to set "ShowInstallLinks" to "true".

We hope this will make it easier for mobile users to make use of the API.

Also if Hilmar shows up at your desk just tell him that we are good ;-)

I feel left out since I can't figure out a way to use this with web based apps. Crying or Very sad

I meant on how to implement it, I don't know what I should looking for to open it. I imagine I need a receiver, but I don't know what it needs to listen for.

Sorry I misunderstood your question. Yes that page has the information on how to launch your activity when the user clicks the link. What's your android app?

No problem, I guessed that was the case. The app is still in development, it does a few cool things already but has some issues to solve like force closes because of the auto updating mechanism. Do you do periodic API calls on Aura? I see no service started by the app.
