Assign or reassign API key for Nomis.


nomis_api_key(check_env = FALSE)



If TRUE, will check the environment variable NOMIS_API_KEY first before asking for user input.


The Nomis API has an optional key. Using the key means that 100,000 rows can be returned per call, which can speed up larger data requests and reduce the chances of being rate limited or having requests timing out.

By default, nomisr will look for the environment variable NOMIS_API_KEY when the package is loaded. If found, the API key will be stored in the session option nomisr.API.key. If you would like to reload the API key or would like to manually enter one in, this function may be used.
