Access Tokens

This guide describes how to generate Phrase Access Tokens, how they work and how they can be used.

Access Tokens can be used to access the API without providing your username and password. They substitute your login data to access the API. Based on the scope that has been granted with the Token, you can perform specific actions within the API.

Generate an Access Token

To generate an Access Token, navigate to the user profile dropdown in the top right corner of your Phrase account and select Access Tokens.
Click on Generate a Token, and add the purpose that you are using the token for, and it's Scope. You can choose from a list of scopes to limit the access for your Token.

Click on Save to generate the Token. You will get a notification that confirms the creation of your Access Token. The access Token that you have just created is now visible in plain text, and you will have the option to copy it directly. For security reasons, this will be the only time that you are able to see the plain text of your token, so you should copy it immediately and save it in a secure place.
You can always edit the Name and Scope of your Access Token after generating it, by clicking on the settings button.
Deleting your access token will remove it's functionality and you won't be able to access your API via that token anymore. 

You can create as many Access Tokens as you need. All your Tokens will be listed in your Access Tokens Menu and can be accessed, edited, and deleted  there.
