Here are instructions to generate an API key in Manex:

You'll need to have access to SQL Server Management Studio, your Manex Database, and your network firewall settings.

  1. Create a manex user and assign permissions (currently, only inventory permissions are needed)

  2. Go to SQL database, and enter query "Select * from aspnet_profile" to identify the user

3. Note the UserId for the user you just created.

4. Run the following transaction in sql database to enter the API key:

"Update ASPNET_Profile set ApiKey = 'YOUR API KEY' where UserId = 'USER ID VALUE';"

We will need you to send:

  • Web manex url

  • API key

The IP address that may access your servers to synchronize the data are:


Production IPs


Therefore, you'll need to open up your firewall to that IP address for the web port which web manex is using.

Once we do this, we'll be able to look up your manex part numbers based on the MPN you enter into CalcuQuote.
