At the upcoming reset today, the old authentication process will no longer work and anyone who have not switch over to the API Key system will have to re-authenticate.

You do not have to do this now and can do it when ever you want, however you will lose access to the restricted parts of the forum after reset tonight and will only regain access once you re-authenticate using the API Key system

For help, see Help: Authentication

If you want to know why this is happening, see Heads Up - Authorization Process Changes

If you have any issues, feel free to ask for help in this thread, as you do not need restricted access to post in this thread

Hey! Maybe someone already mentioned it, but if you haven't authenticated and are logged in, you can't go to the authenticate page and see how you do it, took me some time until I figured out I had to log out to be able to read it there :)

I were also unable to see anything at all except the "FSP Recruitment Status", the WvW score thingie on the front page and my account settings.

Edit: couldn't see this thread either for example, so people that have the same problem won't be able to ask for help here ^^;

Again, not my fault

https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/community/api/API-Keys-ErrBadData-since-patch (scroll down)

I will extend the expiration time while they are working on it

I'll work on something later this week that will disable the removal process if it detects an unusual high amounts of invalid keys. Just never figured anet would release so many broken updates

I changed the expiration time to 5 days if the error ErrBadData (the error that usually pop up when anet screws up) is detected instead of 1 day as before when it encountered any issue like invalid keys

This should give anet enough time to fix issues with their API, even if they push updates on Fridays (which they should really stop with)

Arenanet seems to have completely broken the api trying to fix it

From what i can gather, the API might even delete existing keys if some endpoints of the API is called

Anyway disabled the api again... so everyone should have access... again...

I have a feeling everyone is going to have a fun time recreating their keys when this is over, unless it is a cache issue on their end.

Re-enabled authentication process, all keys have been restored by ANet, no need to create a new API key
