  • Enabling (allowing) support for API individual token types. This can be set to completely deny access for a given token type and prevent users from creating these API tokens.

  • Enforce a maximum token duration before expiry. When expiration is enabled, tokens will automatically be removed when the expiration time is reached.

  • Enforcing an IP filter, limiting the range of IP addresses wherein the token can be used.that can use the token.
