Create authorization tokens

Tokens provide authorization for agents and users.

Agents use tokens when performing process steps and communicating with the server and external services. In certain situations, users can use tokens instead of a username and password.

Tokens can also be used with the command-line client.

You can create tokens in addition to the tokens included with Deployment Automation.

To create a token:

  1. In Deployment Automation, navigate to Administration > Security.

  2. Select Tokens and click Create. The Create Token dialog box opens.

  3. From the User list, select the user to use the token.

  4. Specify the token expiration date and time.

  5. (Optional) Enter a description for the token.

  6. Click Save.

    To create another token, click Save and New.

You can use tokens immediately after creating them.
