Confluent Keys


API keys for Confluent Cloud can be created with user and service accounts. A service account is intended to provide an identity for an application or service that needs to perform programmatic operations within Confluent Cloud. When moving to production, ensure that only service account API keys are used. Avoid user account API keys, except for development and testing. If a user leaves and a user account is deleted, all API keys created with that user account are deleted and might break applications.
