How to Connect Your Coinbase Advanced Trade account with Altrady

Coinbase Advanced Trade has replaced Coinbase Pro as the advanced trading platform provided by Coinbase. If you still have a CBP API key and need to upgrade it to a CBAT API key, please create a CBAT API key, and replace your CPB Pro API key and secret in Altrady with the new pair. This is done by editing your current CBP trading account. So not delete the old account and add a new one, or your entrie trading history will be deleted.
Coinbase Institutional accounts are not/no longer supported by the standard CB API. However, if you can create an API key on the CB retail site, it can be used with Altrady.
From 1st May, 2024, Coinbase is using Coinbase Cloud, with a new process for creating an API key. Below find video and written instrucitons for creating a new key and adding it to Altrady.

Coinbase will sometimes impose a 48 hour wait time on a new API key. If that's the case, you will receive a Coinbase email to that point. The API key cannot be added to Altrady until the 48 hours has elapsed.

Adding a Coinbase Cloud Developer Program (CDP) API key

After logging in, open the Account menu and select My Preferences

Select the API option

Click the option to Create an API key with Developer Platform

Select API keys.
Then Create API Key

Enter a nickname for your API key on Coinbase.
Open the section for API Restrictions

Enable Trade permission
Next, we will log into Altrady to obtain the IP whitelist to paste in Coinbase.
Leave this window open.

Log in to Altrady and naviagate to Settings> Exchange Account API keys.
Click + Connect Account

Select Coinbase for the account type

From Altrady, copy the IP whitelist and paste it into Coinbase
(This is optional, but recommended for extra security)
Then click Create & download

A file might be downloaded in the background, and request a location and name. CANCEL this download.
This file includes your API key and secret, which would compromise security if downloaded onto your computer.

Use the Copy icons to copy the API key and Secret to Altrady
In Altrady, click Save
In Coinbase, click I've saved my key

Use the COPY icons. Selecting with a mouse or keyboard, and Copy/paste will not copy the keys correctly

If the API key is not created successfully in Coinbase, try logging out of Coinbase and logging in again before creating a new API key.
And repeat from the start. In Altrady, the IP address whitelist will be new.

In Altrady click Add

You have successfully connected your Coinbase Advanced Trade exchange account with Altrady.
Your recent trade and order history will be automatically imported using your API key.
Traders with a paid subscription can manually import their earlier trade history at Settings>Exchange Import.
Your balances can take up to 5 minutes fo be updated by the exchange .
If your balances take longer than that to update, find out how to quickly update them:

In the Markets widget, choose Coinbase exchange to view Coinbase markets.
Place orders on your Coinbase AT account in the Trading widget.

If you have more than one Coinbase account, these can be selected from the Trading Accounts list, near the top of the Trading Terminal.

API details can be updated at anytime by selecting the edit icon.

Never delete your API key altogether, since all of your trade, order, position and portfolio history will be lost.
