If you have lost your current API key, you can regenerate the API key. You can use the regenerated API key to register AppDefense Appliance with the AppDefense Manager again. You can also regenerate the API key when your current appliance has crashed and you deployed a new appliance OVA and you want to continue using the same appliance that is displayed in the AppDefense Manager Appliances list. You can then regenerate the API key and use the key in the new appliance to connect to the AppDefense Manager. After regeneration, the current API key becomes invalidate.
