Tokens provide authorization for agents and users. Agents use tokens when performing process steps and communicating with the Serena Release Automation server and external services. Users can use tokens with the CLI client (see Command Line Client (CLI)), and instead of supplying a user name and password in certain situations.

You can create tokens in addition to those shipped with the product.

To create a token:

  1. Display the Create New Token dialog Settings > Security > Tokens > Create New Token [button].

  2. From the User drop-down list box, select the user who will use the token.

  3. Specify the expiration date and time.

Tokens can be used immediately after being created.
