I am playing around with JSS App with Sitecore 9.1.0 (rev. 001564). I have followed the youtube video for Build Your First JSS App and I have been stuck at one point where I need to create the API Keys to integrate JSS App with my Sitecore instance as shown below:

enter image description here

But I could not find the Services folder under which API Keys should be created:

I checked the steps multiple times and did not miss any step until the API Keys are created.

Do I need to install any other package or module for this or I have missed something while installing Sitecore instance?


This is a fresh Sitecore 9.1 instance and I did not get any issue/error while installing.

Any help/pointer is much appreciated.

  • If I am not mistaken, the folder for services is now on the master database. Please check on master database and at the same path (/sitecore/system/Settings/Services) Commented Oct 3, 2019 at 20:14
  • @HishaamNamooya Yes you are correct. Services folder is in master database. I think the content in video is from older version, I found this video on top articles that create some confusion her. Thanks for your prompt response.

On Sitecore 9.1, you should use the master database instead of the core. This has been changed in Sitecore 9.1 as specified in the Release Notes. There is no more the need of the core database on a CD Server as Sitecore security membership provider is not used.

So, due to this, they moved the Services folder to the master database. On master database, navigate to the path /sitecore/system/Settings/Services/API Keys and it is there that you'll be able to create the API Key.

You can also have more information on creating an API Key at Sitecore 9.1 documentation
