Visit the XUMM Developer Console by navigating to If this is your first time using the XUMM Developer Console, you will need to register an account OR sign in with your Github account, if you have one.

After logging in to the XUMM Developer Console, create a new application by clicking the Create new application button. Enter a title and description for your app and upload an icon or picture if desired. If you are only going to be playing and testing with the API, the app title and description do not matter.

For this tutorial entering a Webhook URL is not required.

After creating your new XUMM API application, you will be taken to a page showing your API Key and API Secret.

Example credentials and where to find them.
New App credentials

โ— Keep these credentials SAFE!
You can always find your API Key in the XUMM Developer Console however, your API Secret will be displayed only once. You can always generate a new one if required, but doing so will require updating the API Secret in all your applications.

โ— NEVER share or publish your app credentials!
Your API Secret is for backend use only. Never use these credentials in the frontend of a client side project. If you think your API Secret has been compromised, please regenerate a new secret in the XUMM Developer Console.

Congratulations, you have now registered your first (?) XUMM App. Let's get started!
