This blog post will provide you with instructions on how to generate a SendGrid API key in Azure. SendGrid is a cloud-based email service that offers dependable transactional email delivery, scalability, and real-time analytics. Azure is a cloud computing platform developed by Microsoft that offers a variety of cloud services.


Before you can create a SendGrid API key in Azure, you need to have the following:

  • An active Microsoft Azure account
  • A SendGrid account

Step 1: Launch Azure Portal

The first step is to log in to the Azure portal. You can do this by typing “” into your web browser.

Step 2: Create a SendGrid Account

To create a SendGrid account on Azure, navigate to the marketplace and search for SendGrid. Select “SendGrid Email Delivery” and click “Create”. Fill in all the necessary information, and click “Create”.

Step 3: Create SendGrid API Key

Once your SendGrid account is set up, it’s time to create an API key. This key will be used to authenticate your SendGrid account when sending emails via Azure.

First, visit your SendGrid dashboard on Azure and click on “Manage”. This will take you to the SendGrid App, where you can manage all your email settings.

Now, navigate to the “Settings” section and click on “API Keys”. Here, click on “Create API Key”.

Assign a name to your new key. In the permissions dropdown, select “Full Access” if you want this key to have all permissions. Alternatively, you can customise the permissions according to your needs.

Click “Create & View”. You will now see your new API key.

Important: This is the only time you will see this key. Be sure to copy and save it in a secure location. If you lose it, you will have to create a new one.

Step 4: Use the API Key

Now that you have the API key, you can use it in your application to send emails via SendGrid. Here is a simple example of how to use it with Node.js:

const sgMail = require('@sendgrid/mail');

const msg = {
  to: '[email protected]',
  from: '[email protected]',
  subject: 'Sending with SendGrid is Fun',
  text: 'and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js',
  html: '<strong>and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js</strong>',


Replace process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY with your SendGrid API key, adjust the email parameters as needed, and you’re good to go!
