Creating an API_KEY for the API says it will overwrite a previous API_KEY

Creating an API_KEY for the API says it will overwrite a previous API_KEY... But it appears we are already using an existing key which is marked "hidden" so I can't use it and I don't want to cause any other script (which I don't know about) to stop working if I overwrite the previous API_KEY

I asked this question earlier in a chat but didn't hear back. Thanks!

This is implemented for security reasons, WMSpanel indeed won't show you an existing API_KEY, you can only overwrite it.
If you have WMSpanel API credentials present in any running script you can take these active creds from that script.
Alternatively, you can add another user, give that user with 'admin' rights, enable 'API access', generate user-specific creds.

Ah a different user. That makes total sense. I will figure this out and thank you!
