Personal API tokens

The API is used for real-time collaboration. An API token can be used to create, read, update and delete rows in the tables of the token’s group. It only works on the tables if the token has the correct permissions.

To create an API token,

  1. Go to your profile, then navigate to your ‘Settings’ page
  2. Click on the ‘API Tokens’ tab
  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.

To copy the token ID, select the ellipsis icon beside the selected group and copy the token.

Learn more about updating API permissions.

When sharing publicly, you must be cautious about setting the appropriate permissions. If you expose your token publicly, anyone with that token can create, read, update, and delete your data. If you accidentally expose your API Token to the public, visit the API token page as soon as possible to generate a new one.

Generate API token

You can generate a new API token by clicking the ‘Generate new token’ button. Also, you can rename the token by clicking ‘Rename’.

Delete API token

You can delete an existing database token owned by an authorized user that has access to the related group.
