Are we planning to have API Key for rest API call.
Right now we have to create API ID/Password for each of the zone for outside component connect using RESTAPI. Can we avoid this?
We have this in Roadmap for June release this year.
When is the plan to release API key for rest API call?
We have added support for API key now but this is still tied to a user. You can create one user, generate API key for that user and use it in all places. We do not support multiple concurrent REST sessions in public cloud but if you use Basic Auth you can work around this limitation.
Did we do any improvement in API Key use.

We just need to use the value of API token instead of password value in login method. Please refer to following link for more details.
Example as follows:
