Manage API tokens
Create an API token
To create a new API token, set the API expiration by selecting one of the Expires In radio buttons. Then select Generate to generate a new API token. A unique API token will populate in the API token input field.
A unique API token will populate in the API token input field and the creation and expiration dates will display below the token. Copy the token immediately and store in a save place.
Once you leave the page, you can no longer view or copy the API token. Ensure you copy the token before saving.
You will receive a warning when your API token is close to expiring. A warning is displayed in your Account Settings next to the Expiration Date dropdown.
API token expiry cannot be extended. Once a token has expired, a new token must be generated.
Delete an API token
Only one API token can be created at a time. If you need to create a new API token but one already exists, you must first delete the current token.
You can delete the API token by selecting the trash bin icon ( ) located next to the API Token input field.
Deleting an API token is a permanent action and cannot be undone.
A confirmation message will appear to verify that you would like to delete the API token and reminding you that a new API token will need to be generated for future calls. Select Confirm to delete the token.
If the token is successfully deleted you will receive a confirmation message and the API token field will be empty. You can proceed to generate a new token or exit out of Account Settings without generating a new token by selecting Save.
After reading this guide you should have an understanding of how to update your account settings and manage your API tokens. For details on managing Environment Operations Center users, see the create a new user or edit an existing user guides.
