Why migrate from API keys to
HubSpot Private Apps? 

On 30th November 2022, HubSpot will sunset their API key authentication system. This means that any app or integration built using API keys will stop working. 

Historically, the vast majority of custom HubSpot integrations were built using API keys. With this change, some of the vital automations built for your business could be broken overnight. 

How can you prevent your HubSpot integration from breaking? 

To prevent your HubSpot integration from breaking you need to create a private app, assign the appropriate scopes and then deploy that app's token within your integration. 

This work should be conducted by an experienced API developer. SpotDev's API Keys to HubSpot Private Apps service ensures an expert API developer with extensive HubSpot experience completes the updates for you. 

Which integrations should be updated?

Any integration using an API key to access HubSpot

API keys generated in your HubSpot portal will stop working after 30th November 2022 unless they are updated. 

Zapier integrations using webhooks with API key authentication

Standard Zapier integrations are built using OAuth, which isn't impacted by this update. Those that use webhooks will need to be updated. 

Integromat/Make integrations using webhooks with API key authentication

Make (previously known as Integromat) standard integrations are not impacted by this update. Those that use webhooks will need to be updated.

HubSpot to HubSpot integrations using
API keys

Many in-house apps that automate HubSpot functionality using API calls will need to be updated from API keys to private apps. 

Prices from

The baseline cost of an API Key to HubSpot Private Apps migration is £1,000. This covers up to two custom integrations updated.
