If the API key is provided, sets the environmental variable. You can set your API key in four ways:

nassqs_auth(key)

Arguments

key

the API key (obtained from https://quickstats.nass.usda.gov/api)

Details

  1. directly or as a variable from your R program: nassqs_auth(key = "<your api key>"

  2. by setting NASSQS_TOKEN in your R environment file (you'll never have to enter it again).

  3. by entering it into the console when asked (it will be stored for the rest of the session.)

Examples

# Set the API key nassqs_auth(key = "<your api key>") Sys.getenv("NASSQS_TOKEN")
#> [1] "<your api key>"
