Getting an API token
Before you can use the API, you must have an API token.
The API token grants you the same permissions that you have in the Tonic application. You can only use the API to perform tasks for which you are granted permission.
You create API tokens from the User Settings view in Tonic.
To display the User Settings view:
- 1.Click your user image at the top right of the Tonic screen.
- 2.In the Tonic options menu, select User Settings.
On the User Settings view, to create a token, click Create Token.
User API Tokens list on the User Settings view
After you create the token, set your authorization header to
Authorization: Apikey <token>.
This type of token does not expire. The user who creates the token can revoke it.
