To interact with API, you need to have a unique, personal access token. This will be used to authenticate yourself within the API.
The token is the equivalent of the user name & password pair. Once generated, it identifies your own account. So you should be careful with it and not disclose it to any un-trusted party (application).
Generate your API Access Token
To generate your access token, you should:
Go to the API Tokens screen under the Admin module.
Click on the Create API Token button to generate a new token.
Enter the API token name on the next screen.
Note down your newly generated token - you are going to need it soon.
- For security reasons, it is not possible to view the token after closing the creation dialog. If necessary, create a new token. Max of 10 tokens is permitted for each user license.
- You should store the token securely, as for any password.
If a user account gets deactivated in AutoRABIT, the API Token will get deactivated at the same time. In some cases, AutoRABIT will need to revoke or invalidate tokens.
For example, when a user logs out of an AR application. If you revoke a token, it can be re-approved anytime before it expires.
