Personal Tokens are a string of characters used to authenticate your user and access to certain interfaces and tools. You can create a long-lived authentication personal token in Real-Time Manager (RTM) to call Azion APIs or to execute commands in the command-line interface (CLI).
While creating a personal token, you’ll have to provide:
- Personal Token name: descriptive and easy-to-remember name.
- Expires in: date of expiration for the token. You can choose the token expiration date between 1, 7, 15, 30, 90 days, 1 year, or a custom date.
- Personal Token description (optional): description to help you remember why the token was created and/or what it was created for.
You can only see your token when you first create it. After clicking the OK button, your token can no longer be seen or copied and you won’t be able to access it again. Treat your tokens like passwords and save them in a safe place right after you create them.
You can create as many personal tokens as you like and you can view them under the Personal Tokens option in the Account Menu, located in the top-right corner of RTM. You can’t modify a token once it’s created, but you’ll be able to see its scope, last modified date, and expiration date.
