Important Note:
This article is for the 'Org Administrator' in particular. The actions discussed in the article will not be available to the General Users.  

Overview

An API token is a unique identifier of an application requesting access to your service. API tokens are used to authenticate requests to the AutoRABIT APIs. 

Obtaining your Access Token 

To interact with API, you need to have a unique, personal access token. This will be used to authenticate yourself within the API. 

Important Note:
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).

To generate your access token, you should:

  1. Hover your mouse over the Admin tile and select the option: API Tokens
  2. Click on the Create API Token button to generate a new token.
  3. Enter the API Token Name on the next screen. 
  4. Click Create.
  5. Note down your newly generated token - you are going to need it soon.
Important Note:
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.

Token Deactivation

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 the AutoRABIT application. If you revoke a token, it can be re-approved anytime before it expires.
