Frequently asked questions
Can I request an API key for a new app?
We're actively exploring on how best to open up public access to our API again. While we're currently not issuing new API keys to 3rd party apps, we're helping improve the systems and tools in place to better serve the already active integrations. This is helping us to better understand what resources we need to put in place in order to support this product at scale. We understand this may be frustrating to new developers, but we hope to have your support and patience during this phase.

How can I update my app's
Our Support Team will be happy to help you with your URI's redirects. Please fill out a ticket here under "I need help with something else" and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
My app disappeared from
https://soundcloud.com/you/apps, what should I do?
If you registered an app with Soundcloud and now cannot find it, it's possible your API keys were revoked as unused for some time. Our Support Team will be happy to help you with reinstating the keys. Please fill out a ticket here under "I need help with something else" and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
I have a questions about the SDKs. Can I post them here?
Yes, you may. However, please note that we're not maintaining the Ruby, Python or JS SDK anymore and we're going to be announcing soon that we're going to open it for maintainers from the community if there's interest. Our recommendation is to use the API directly and build your own client. We will also be exposing the underlying yaml file for the OpenAPI spec soon, so that folks can generate clients from this.
I am an official partner of SoundCloud. Can I use this issue tracker for a technical question?
This repository only deals with the public-facing API. Any partnership-specific questions don’t belong here as this is a public forum; please contact your SoundCloud partnership contact.
