API Access

Click the API Access link to expand the “API ACCESS” modal. In this modal you can generate or refresh access tokens that can be used with Morpheus API and Morpheus CLI.

If no token yet exists for a particular “CLIENT ID”, click ACTIONS and then Generate. If a token has expired, we can also regenerate that token by clicking ACTIONS and then Regenerate. After regenerating a particular token, you would need to ensure any scripts using those tokens are updated.

After navigating away from the User Settings page, the complete access and refresh tokens will be masked from view. If these are lost or compromised, you can eliminate a token completely by clicking ACTIONS and then Clear. If you need to generate a new token for the same Client ID, click ACTIONS and then Regenerate.
