How do I delete a Key List API entry once created?

An incorrect entry was made in the Key List table and I want to remove it but it is asking for rowid and there is none.

[recon-ng][default][flickr] > delete help Deletes records from the database

Usage: delete <table> [rowid(s)]

optional arguments: rowid(s) => ',' delimited values or '-' delimited ranges representing rowids

[recon-ng][default][flickr] > show keys list rowid

+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Name | Value | +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | bing_api | | | builtwith_api | | | censysio_id | | | censysio_secret | | | flicker_api | I want to delete this entry

    You can delete individual keys by their names. Something like keys delete bing_api

    If you ever forget, you can do the ${object} help thing to get some (very terse) help, as in:

    [recon-ng][default] > keys help
    Manages framework API keys
    
    Usage: keys [list|add|delete]

    Thanks,,,,but that didn't work...it was asking for rowid

    [recon-ng][default] > delete flicker_api Deletes records from the database

    Usage: delete <table> [rowid(s)]

    optional arguments: rowid(s) => ',' delimited values or '-' delimited ranges representing rowids

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

    The framework treats API keys as a special kind of object. They're different from the data recon_ng collects in the companies or contacts tables of each workspace, for example. The keys are stored in a separate database, so that you don't have to re-enter them for every workspace.

    If you look in your ~/.recon-ng/ directory, you'll see a file keys.db and a directory workspaces.

    • The keys.db file is where your API keys live.
    • You can create any number of workspaces in the workspaces directory.

    When you start a command with delete, the framework is looking at the tables in the database for your current workspace, and not the keys.db database.

    Here's what I see when I add a key and then delete it. Does this help?

    [recon-ng][default] > keys add bing_api 123
    [*] Key 'bing_api' added.
    [recon-ng][default] > keys list
    
      +--------------------------+
      |       Name       | Value |
      +--------------------------+
      | bing_api         | 123   |
      | builtwith_api    |       |
    
    <!-- snip -->
    
    [recon-ng][default] > keys delete bing_api
    [*] Key 'bing_api' deleted.
    [recon-ng][default] > keys list
    
      +--------------------------+
      |       Name       | Value |
      +--------------------------+
      | builtwith_api    |       |
      | censysio_id      |       |
    

    Below shows that 'companies' is a table that's part of my current workspace, but 'keys' is not.

    [recon-ng][default] > query select * from companies
    [*] No data returned.
    
    [recon-ng][default] > query select * from keys
    [!] Invalid query. OperationalError no such table: keys.
