Tokens in Xapix

Xapix uses three different types of tokens: API Access tokens, Admin API tokens and test tokens.

  • API Access Token - Each Xapix user is provided with an API Access Token which is a user token that is accessed on the User Profile page. This token does not expire. It is used for accessing the Xapix CLI (xapixctl).

  • Admin API-token - This is an OAuth2 bearer token that can be used for third parties to access a project's endpoints. It is available on the User Management page. It expires after 15 minutes and needs to be regenerated.

  • Test tokens - When a project is published, a cURL command is generated that contains a test token for testing an API call. It expires in 24 hours.
