WSKeys and your EZproxy annual subscription
In order to use Stand-alone EZproxy, you must have a current annual subscription that includes the WSKey. If you purchased a license prior to January 2013 and you are currently not on an annual subscription, you can request a quote for hosted EZproxy. If you are uncertain if your subscription is current, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your EZproxy WSKey
If you are having trouble locating your institution's WSKey, please contact OCLC Support.
Stand-alone customers may use the "reissue" feature in WSKey Management if you believe your EZproxy WSKey has been compromised. After obtaining the new WSKey, follow the appropriate install instructions for your operating system to add it to your server.
Retrieve your WSKey
WSKey information is stored in OCLC's WSKey Management. See the Developer Network FAQs for more information about how to log in. If you are having trouble locating your institution's WSKey, please contact OCLC Support.
Some EZproxy features require the WSKey secret to enable them. The WSKey secret is viewable from the Developer Network. If you are having trouble locating your institution's WSKey secret, please contact OCLC Support.
WSKeys for test EZproxy servers
EZproxy subscribers do not need to request a separate WSKey to install EZproxy on a test server. Subscribers may reuse their production WSKey to install EZproxy on a test server without impacting their production server in any way.
