Allow to see generated once API-key again. Add "show" button.

Allow to see generated once API-key again. Now, its "Hidden" and we should re-generate it :(

    it's bloody confusing. Would it hurt to make it clear that you need to save the key somewhere else. It's bad enough that I have to jump between API versions.

    This is completely terrible user experience and has absolutely nothing to do with security. No other API doesn't let you see your own damn API key.

    By the way, example:
    I have created application A to monitor threw api. I generate key and put it in application A.
    After that, i found another app to monitor servers. I want to use this app B and still use app A.
    I do not know key. I must re-generate key and put it in appA and appB.
    But what if i got 10 apps or 10 friends with this apps? All 10 apps will broke.

    yep, I think it is secure, but we can go in trouble, if used this api key in many applications and then want to create new one, but if regenerate - other apps will be offline.

    We specifically do not show the API key more than once for security reasons. =]

    If you misplace the key it is recommend to generate a new one.

    Thanks!

    I'm sure that they did this because of security reason. Just regenerate again if you lost your API key
