    How to find DB_KEY for local database

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.2


    How can I find the db_key value to be used for patron_homedb in RESTful API requests?


    DB_KEY is stored in the VOYAGER_DATABASES table.

    1. Log into the database as the read-only user (ro_xxxdb / ro_xxxdb).
    2. Use the following query to retrieve the db_key value for your local database
    SELECT db_key
    FROM voyager_databases
    WHERE db_code='LOCAL';

    Please note that Voyager Support has a very limited ability to assist with the Voyager APIs.  We can help identify the APIs that might be useful to you, and provide basic troubleshooting aid.  Voyager-L and Developer Network  are useful resources for obtaining additional assistance.
