The api-list_accessible_cmds command lists all commands the API Key used in the command has access to.

For example, the following command would only output commands that the Key 1A2B3C4D5E6F7G8H has been given permissions to access.

These permissions were set when the key was originally created.



The api-list_keys command lists all API keys the account has created.

You must have an API key with access to all commands ("*") to use this command.
