I can't find any keys under your account. Please sign into Wunderground, go to the link below, select the plan type and level for the key, and click "purchase key" (even if it's for the developer level). You'll then fill out a quick form and you'll get your key.

I suppose the problem is the wunderground backend. Checking the link they send to validate the email: https://www.wunderground.com/member/validate?email=youremailhere&auth=XXXXX&redirect=1<br>changing redirect=0 I got this JSON response:

{
	"status": "error",
	"errors": [
		{
		"field_name": "auth",
		"error_code": "already_valid",
		"error_string": "Account has already been validated."
		}
	 ] 
}

The plan seems selected according to the IU "Your Selected Plan:  Developer Stratus" but the  problem is still the message it appears in the same page: "You haven't validated your account. Follow the link in the email you should have received when you registered in order to continue. Make sure you used the correct email address."

So, I cannot see the API anywhere in wunderground webapp.
Any other idea?

The validation system is being looked into right now to figure out why its getting stuck in that finalization process.  It should work again shortly

Ameen, I got the same thing, but the API key that returned is the one I used.  It works fine for me now.

Yes, more time that I can count. I'm always getting...: "You haven't validated your account. Follow the link in the email you should have received when you registered in order to continue. Make sure you used the correct email address." ... Which I've validated as many times. I've looked everywhere I know to find it. I've logged onto your site and even have a member number or Handle:WU_7825962. I just can't seem to find, figure out how to make or otherwise acquire my API

We believe this is happening because of a lag in the sign up process.  As the last member stated, it worked after about 15 minutes.  I'm sorry for the lag in sign up.

I was able to retrieve an API key after several attempts and walking away from it until morning. If I can help troubleshoot in any way, please let me know.

how do you receive your api key?
I signed up for a ten dollars a year but now i am seeing 20 dollars a month.

Is the api key only for developers and i have signed up for the wrong thing?

Hi,

I have signed up and validated my email but I can't get past the pricing page https://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/d/pricing.html

If I click on 'Purchase Key' I keep being asked to validate my email address, which I have done!
Is there a waiting time before I can use the API?

Thanks

Chris

It's ok now. Once I completed in some project info I can now see my key. I think that perhaps there was some kind of delay.

If someone fixed it - it's broken again.  I went through the API key signup process 4x and the only thing I get is email verification.  No API key.

Still the same problem. Try repeatedly, follow instructions, but no API key. Since this problem has obviously been going on for months, why hasn't it been fixed?

Same issue here. I am stuck in the validating loop. I've already validated my email address several times. The URL, when redirect=1 is changed to redirect=0, is indicating that:
status: "error",
errors: [
{
field_name: "auth",
error_code: "already_valid",
error_string: "Account has already been validated."
}
]

Come on, guys, this is getting ridiculous.

Same issue here. Did many times the process.

Why the validation procedure can not be fixed after months being reported it is not working?

This is no doubt the sorriest company I have ever had to deal with. WU can't  fix anything, they say it's fixed but it isn't. I feel sorry for anyone actually paying for this service . I've had a free service for over a year and it's hasn't run a full week without multiple problems. I'm finally down to only ONE API from them and IT doesn't work. I switched to Aeris Weather and it's flawless. I'm paying for Aeris API's but I'd rather pay for something that works rather than suffer with incompetence from WU. You all should switch to another weather service. Start rewriting your weather service now from someone else, you will be happier I promise.
