Manage personal access tokens
Authentication tokens allow a user to enter their credentials once, then receive an alphanumeric token to use to access different services or parts of the system infrastructure.
Authentication tokens are tied to the permissions granted to the user through role-based access control (RBAC), and they provide the user with the appropriate access to application programming interfaces (APIs). You can use tokens in API endpoint requests.
