Integrate Portkey and analyze your first LLM call in 2 minutes!

1. Get your Portkey API Key

Portkey offers a variety of integration options, including SDKs, REST APIs, and native connections with platforms like OpenAI, Langchain, and LlamaIndex, among others.

Through the OpenAI SDK

If you're using the OpenAI SDK, import the Portkey SDK and configure it within your OpenAI client object:

You can also use the Portkey SDK / REST APIs directly to make the chat completion calls. This is a more versatile way to make LLM calls across any provider:


Once, the integration is ready, you can view the requests reflect on your Portkey dashboard.

Is my data secure?

Portkey is ISO:27001 and SOC 2 certified. We're also GDPR compliant. This is proof that we maintain the best practices involving security of our services, data storage and retrieval. All your data is encrypted in transit and at rest.

If you're still worried about your data passing through Portkey, we recommend one of the below options:

  1. On request, we can enable a feature that does NOT store any of your request and response body objects in the Portkey datastores or our logs.

  2. For enterprises, we offer managed hosting to deploy Portkey inside private clouds.
