Api key

#1
Hello, I only have one question left before buying a license :)

It is about the api key. I want a program to connect to my forum via the API key. I come from vbulletin and there the api is easily generated.

In Xenforo I have seen several threads but by my level of English I do not understand them.

This seems to be alluding to using plugins to generate the API:

https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-api.122237/

Then there is this:
https://xenforo.com/api

I do not know if there are several APIs for each task or just one.

Does it mean that to get the KEY API I need to install a plugin, or do I need to validate the license? Or is not the same "License Validation API" as "API key"?

Thanks for the patience. I will be grateful for an easy explanation.
