A CloudTruth API access token can be used with the CloudTruth CLI and for bearer authorization with the Rest API. The API access token is scoped at the user level and allows programmatic access for configuration management across the organization.
Open the CloudTruth API administration screen by clicking
API Access in the left hand menu.
Generate New Token and select the desired token permissions, provide a Token name and then click
Create Token. The token name and permissions can be updated at any time after creation from the manage token menu.
Token permissions are treated like user accounts and follow the defined organization role permissions.
If needed, you can re-generate the access token string from
Manage API Token under the token menu.
From the token menu select
Manage API Token.
Regenerate Token and copy your Access Token.
API Tokens can be removed individually from the CloudTruth API menu by deleting specific tokens.
Once API access tokens are created they are treated as a user, so they are also are displayed in the User Directory. Permissions and access can be changed directly from each access token in the API Access page or from the User Directory menu page.
