App owner API authentication—what's my App ID?

Hey there,

I am using the iNaturalist API through Python scripts for research. Since I also need to upload some observations through the scripts, I requested authenticated access to the API. I was made an app owner. So far, so good. However, when trying to log in (e.g., through Pyinaturalist, for convenience), I am not only asked my user name and password, but also my app ID and app secret. Since I didn’t register an app, I never received such information.
How do I set these parameters?

You need to make an app – go to and click New Application in the upper right. After you save, you’ll get the app ID and app secret.
