Tokens provide authorization for agents and users. Agents use tokens when performing process steps and communicating with the server and external services. Users can use tokens instead of supplying a user name and password in certain situations. Tokens can also be used with the command line client.

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

To create a token:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Security.
  2. In the selection box, select Tokens.
  3. Click the Create New Token button.
  4. From the User drop-down list box, select the user who will use the token.
  5. Specify the expiration date and time.

Tokens can be used immediately after being created.
