There's a new version of the HubSpot API

As of November 30, 2022, HubSpot API Keys are being deprecated and are no longer supported. Continued use of HubSpot API Keys is a security risk to your account and data. Your API Keys could be deactivated at any time after Nov. 30th, and we recommend that you migrate to Private Apps as soon as possible so you do not lose business-critical functionality.
