Account tokens can be managed by clicking on your account details and selecting your profile. It’s possible to copy the token by clicking on the Copy button option.

More than one token can be created for the same profile, and permissions and expiration dates may also be configured as needed.

A token is generated every time you log in to your account or someone that you shared your profile login. Auto generated tokens are crated with an expiration time of 3 months, and will be deleted automatically after a certain period of time or when the user logout of the account manually.
