Hi Sascha and Geert,

A quick and dirty way to get the API key during tool execution would be 
something like:
${ __app__.model.User.get( $__user_id__ ).api_keys[0].key }

Of course, it would be better if there were a more straightforward way to 
access the key. It would also be a good idea to add some checking for e.g. a 
logged in user and that the user has an API key set. 


Thanks for using Galaxy,

Dan
