From the Access Token page, you can generate and manage access tokens that apply to your account. Access tokens can be used when accessing the REST APIs.

NOTE: Project owners can delete the access tokens of other users.

  • Status: Current status of the token:
    • Active - Token is active and can be used for access.
    • Expired - Token has expired after its expiration timestamp has been reached.
  • Created: Timestamp for when the token was created.
  • Expires: Timestamp for when the token expires.
  • Last Used: Timestamp for when the token was last used.

Context menu:

  • Delete Token: Click the delete the token.

    Deleting a token cannot be undone.

    NOTE: If you delete an active token, any API usage that references the token no longer works.

Generate Token

When you generate a token, you can provide the following information.

Figure: Generate Token Dialog

  • Lifetime: Enter the number of days that you would like to use this token without renewal. 
    • If the token expires, a new one must be created. You can generate a new token at any time. 
    • You can generate any number of tokens.

      TIp: Depending on your environment, you may be able to set this value to -1 to never expire the token.

  • Description: (Optional) you can provide a user-friendly description of the purpose of the token. This value is for display purposes only.

To create the token, click Generate.

After the token is generated, it is automatically activated. You can have multiple active tokens.

You must copy the token out of the application. Click Copy Token to clipboard to copy the text value of the token.

For security purposes, after you close the My Token screen, the token is no longer accessible. You cannot reopen this dialog. You must copy this value and store it in a secure place for later use.
