Generate API credentials by visiting one of OVH's token creation pages. Which page you visit depends on your location.

Everywhere Else

Input the email and password associated with your OVH account. Give your API key a name, description, validity timeframe, and full rights on each HTTP method by specifying /* as the allowed path for each. Then click "Create Keys".

Copy and store your Application Key, Application Secret, and Consumer Key. You'll need these later.
