Etherpad manuals [0] writes: "Authentication works via a token that is sent with each request as a post parameter. There is a single token per Etherpad deployment. This token will be random string, generated by Etherpad at the first start. It will be saved in APIKEY.txt in the root folder of Etherpad. Only Etherpad and the requesting application knows this key. Token management will not be exposed through this API."

On Centos 6.3 we found it using "find / -iname "APIKEX.txt" at "/home/services/etherpad-lite/APIKEY.txt"

There are browser-dependant issues concerning third-party-cookies, for which etherpads' are interpreted when run from inside openerp [1].

I do not know how to contact Alejandro Perico, in order to ask him, what exact problem he has. As soon as I entered the APIKEY, the server and allowed third party cookies, everything worked well.

I deployed an Etherpad-Lite via AWS EC2 and found my APIKEY.txt at /opt/etherpad-lite/apikey.txt

The server name will be the name of your etherpad installation. eg etherpad.yourdomain.com

The API key belongs with the newer Etherpad Lite (not the original version), and should exist in a file at the root of your Etherpad installation .. probably in /var/www/etherpad-lite/APIKEY.txt

As an aside to this, our existing Etherpad is an older version and people aren't keen at upgrading because they don't want to lose some of the features that were dropped with the re-architecting of Etherpad. Which means unless I decide to implement an additional server, I'm stuck :(
