Not from the admin interface right now. I noted this bug just the other day and intended to fix it as it applied to us as well.
Until then, you can easily change the API key manually in the database.

Hi all - I have external authentication established with our enterprise wide LDAP working with Galaxy.  I just noticed that I can no longer manage API keys for users from the Admin Page -> API Keys.  I get "Access to Galaxy user controls is disabled.  User controls are disabled when Galaxy is configured for external authentication"

We basically have a 'nobody' user in Galaxy that populates the Data Library with new data from a proprietary system.  We were using a user's API key (mine) to do this but want to switch over to a daemon style user key.  In order to do so, I need to generate an API key for the dummy user.

Is there no way to get API keys from the Admin interface with external authentication?
