. An access token is a hashed string that enables authentication when submitted to any endpoint. Access tokens limit exposure of clear-text authentication values and provide an easy method of managing authentication outside of the browser.


Notes: 

  • An access token is linked to its creator and can be generated by submitting a username/password combination or another valid token from the same user. 
    • If a token is created for userA, userB can be provided the token to impersonate userA.
    • You cannot create access tokens for users without their authentication credentials.
    • Changes to passwords do not affect tokens.
  • After a token has been created, it cannot be modified or extended.
    • You can create an unlimited number of tokens.
  • Access tokens can be used for authentication with any supported version of the APIs.
