  3. Click on the ‘Create token +’ button
  4. Input the name and select an existing group
  5. Click on the ‘Create token’ button to create a new API token for the selected group and for the authorized user.

Delete account

From the settings page, you can schedule the deletion of your account by entering your current password and clicking the button.

Your account will be permanently deleted after 30 days. When your account is permanently deleted, all groups and associated data for which you are the last active user with Admin permissions will also be deleted. The groups shown below are the ones that will be deleted because you are the only admin. To prevent them being deleted you must first give another user admin before deleting your account.

In the meantime, if you log in again before the 30-day grace period, your account deletion will be cancelled.
