Access Tokens for the CAM REST API

Access tokens are granted to authorized users who have a valid API key. Access tokens are then used to make authenticated requests to access CAM data.

Access tokens typically have a short life span; once expired, refresh tokens can used to obtain a new access token. When refresh tokens expire or the user is logged out, a full login must be performed to obtain new tokens.

Token lifetime is set for each API key. The default lifetime is 20 minutes for access tokens and 1440 minutes for refresh tokens. For information about changing a token's lifetime, see Create an API Key.

To get access tokens, you need:

  • An API key.
  • A CAM user name and password. The privileges assigned to the user granted the token control access to CAM data.
