Personal authentication tokens can be generated from the Nuxeo Online Services portal.
Tokens can be used as a replacement for a password and can be revoked anytime. Here are a few situations where they can be useful:
- In your continuous integration / continuous delivery chain, to have your software authenticate against our Maven private repository,
- When you authenticate using a third party provider (Google or Okta) and need to use our command line tools with options that require a password to be provided, for example, registering an instance using nuxeoctl, linking your Studio project to your Java development project in Nuxeo CLI.
To generate a token:
- Login to Nuxeo Online Services
- Visit the My Tokens tab
- Create your token using the corresponding button and provide a clear name for it (ex: "CI Chain")
Your token will only be shown once, so be sure to save it in a secure place. If you ever forget it or think it may have been compromised, you can revoke it anytime and generate a new one.
