How do I obtain an authentication token?

Overview

With an authentication token you can authenticate yourself against the REST API of metasfresh, which authorizes you to use the web service.

Steps

  1. Open “User” from the menu.
  2. Use the filter to find the entry of the user whose authentication token you want to view and open it.
  3. Go to the record tab “Authentication Tokens” at the bottom of the page.

Add a new authentication token

If no authentication token is shown under the record tab “Authentication Tokens”, you can add a new one. To do so, please proceed as follows:

  1. Click "Add new". An overlay window opens up.
  2. Optional: Enter a Description.
  3. Pick a Role for which the token shall be valid.
  4. Click “Done” to close the overlay window and add the token to the list.
Note:
To copy the authentication token to the clipboard, double-click the field in the column Authentication Token of the token line (the token will turn grey) and press Ctrl + C / ⌘ cmd + C. Or open the advanced edit menu of the token line, highlight the token there with the mouse and use the same keyboard shortcut.
