0001422: Generate user API Key by admin
If admin creates a special API-user, he has to login as API-user to generate the API key.

IMHO it should be possible for admin to create those keys for every user.
If I'm wrong and there is such a button, this is an usability issue ;)
No tags attached.

Currently users have to generate their own API keys. The admin should be able to do this for users as well as send an e-mail to users with their API key.

Should be part of the 1.9 release.

Why is need this feature?

This is a similar argument to why an admin should be able to create users, change users info, and perform general admin-type tasks. The reasons we have these types of features are the same reasons we should have this feature.

This is simply a feature to allow an admin the ability to generate API keys for users rather than users always having to do it themselves.

See no need for private view status. Changing to public.

Please, design it with respect to security. I think that Admin should not be able to see the key. Of course he could generate email that include it.

linked to 0001893 that is more secure and that is the proposed solution for this bug
