This article describes the process of generating an API token, which is required before performing any action(s) via FogBugz/Manuscript API.
The API token has no expiry time. It can be invalidated by performing one of the following:
- Executing a logoff API command with that token.
- Changing your user’s password.
- Having a Manuscript administrator invalidate that token from the Session Management page.
To generate an API token, follow the steps mentioned below:
Navigate to the Avatar Menu > User Options.
Click Create API Token.
Important! The API token is tied to the user account password. If the account password is changed, the API gets invalidated.
