Unable to get API key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to obtain an API key for the Security Updates API.

    I have been directed to the following URL:


    I first logged on using my business email address, and got stuck in a loop, constantly being redirected back and forth between that and the Microsoft sign-in page.

    I then created an @outlook.com address, noting that there was an unresolved issue relating to accounts not from specific Microsoft-owned domains.

    This was slightly better - the above page now presented me with a button to get an API key. However, on clicking that button, I returned to the same login loop.

    I tried these with different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, New Edge), and also with or without Private Browsing.

    Please let me know how I can get my API key.

  • OK, so I found another case from a few months ago that suggested to add a First Name / Last Name to the profile of one's outlook.com account.

    This worked for me.

    When will Microsoft fix this or at least acknowledge it as a known issue in some official documentation?
