Next, you will need your Chargebee API Key.

From the Chargebee Menu, go to “Settings” → “Configure Chargebee”.

Select "Configure Chargebee" from Settings inside Chargebee

Scroll down to “API Keys and Webhooks” and select “API Keys”.

Select APIKey

NOTE: We (HIGHLY) recommend generating a new API Key, since these keys can be tied to specific user(s)/permission(s) and should be treated as private.

Choose Add API Key

You will be shown different key types for this API Key – we recommend selecting the “Read-Only Key” since we are only pulling in existing data from Chargebee.

Choose Read-Only Key

Once you select the Key type, you need to confirm what records the Key should allow you to access/pull data from using Coefficient. We recommend selecting “All”. This will ensure that you are not accidentally leaving out any records that may be important in your imports. Give your API Key a name and then click on the “Create Key” button on the right.

We highly recommend naming your API Key with something like “Key for Coefficient” (as shown) or ”Coefficient API Key”. This will tell you right away what the key is used for – that way no one deletes it by accident.


A new API key will be generated. Please copy the Key and paste it into the API Key field provided in the Coefficient sidebar. Then click the “Connect” button (blue) in the Coefficient sidebar to establish your connection.

Generate API Key

After establishing your connection, return to Chargebee from the Coefficient menu. It will now appear at the bottom of the menu under “Connected sources.”

Select “Chargebee” from the list.

Choose Chargebee as your data source in Coefficient sidebar

Choose “From Objects & Fields”.
