Understand user API tokens

Users create API tokens to authenticate a script and make calls to Atlassian product APIs for access to product data. You need to be able to track the usage of user API tokens in your organization. From one central location, you can monitor API token usage of managed accounts in your organization with user API tokens.

You can see how many active tokens exist, when they were created, and the last time the token was used. You can also quickly assess if someone is potentially leaking information if they have access to a token but are no longer part of the project. How to view user API tokens
