Generating an Access Token

The command line tool needs a token to authorize to the platform. Tokens are generated for specific users using the browser interface.

You can create as many tokens as you want. The most important thing to remember is to copy the token after it’s returned to you. While the token will be visible immediately after it is created, will never again display the token thereafter.

  1. At the top of the left menu in , click your own name.
  2. Click Access Tokens.
  3. Click the + Create new token button.
  4. Supply a name in the Token name name filed and click Save.
    For example, you might use the name of the build server.
  5. A token is returned to you.
  6. Copy the new access token to a secure location; when you refresh the window, the token will no longer be displayed. For security reasons, tokens are not stored.

    When you start issuing commands, you will be prompted to supply this token. After you provide the token, the token is stored in your operating system's login keychain. When you invoke next, it uses the stored token and does not prompt you again.
