Personal API Token Security Policy

The Personal API Token Security Policy controls whether Personal API tokens can be created, their maximum and default duration; and whether they are limited by an IP filter.

The following options can be set as part of the policy:

  • Allow personal tokens

    When enabled, users can go to the Personal API token and create their API token. See Personal API Token for more information on creating a token.

    When disabled, existing tokens will be deleted, and the option to create a Personal API token will no longer be available.

  • Token expiration

    If enabled, a maximum duration for an API token will be enforced at the point that tokens are created and it won't be possible to create API tokens with a duration longer than the configured token expiration. The expiration can be expressed in the number of days, hours or minutes. See Behavior When Changing Token Security Policies for information on the effect of changing this setting.

  • Enforce IP filter

    When enabled, LogScale applies the selected IP filter to all requests made with a Personal API token. The token will only work when the IP filter has not blocked or restricted access. You can select a named IP filter from the list. See IP Filters for more information on creating named IP filters.
