How do I create live & test API tokens?

Once you are on your dashboard, click on the ‘Personal Access Tokens’ link on the left side of the screen and then click on the ‘Generate new token’ button. After that enter, a descriptive name for the token, select the expiry period and check the box that says ‘Test token’ for the test tokens and ‘live tokens’ for live tokens. Now click on the ‘Generate token’ button. Your token should be generated after which you can copy the token.

NB: We do not store the token, so you won’t be able to retrieve it later. Treat your token like a secured password. If you believe your token has been compromised, click on the ‘Revoke’ button beside the token name to revoke it.

Is it possible to track user activity on my account?
Yes, it is possible to track user authentication for data exchanges, sessions, and requests on the platform. We use a token-based authentication system based on SSL/TLS protocols which grant limited access to our APIS based on OAUTH2 tokens. All data requests are encrypted using HTTPS standards.
