Synapse configuration parameters for frequently used client-interactions can be set in a specific file. By default, the file is in the user’s home directory and is called
.synapseConfig. For example, you can set:

.synapseConfig file filled with examples should appear in your home directory if a configuration file is not already present. You can uncomment and fill out the parameters of interest.
From your Synapse homepage, navigate to your user menu and select Settings from the drop-down menu. Your Synapse API key is made visible by selecting Show API Key. In the case the confidentiality of the API key is compromised, or you would like to invalidate your API key, select Change API Key.
