What is API token access?

Users create API tokens to authenticate into an organization and to run scripts. API token access controls whether external users can make API product calls with an API token to your organization's products.

By default, your organization's API token settings are set to allow access. You can allow or block access when external users make API calls to your products. This setting applies to all external users in the organization.

API token access updates

It can take up to 10 minutes to update. The update applies the next time an external user tries to make an API call with a token to run a script into your organization. If an external user tries to access your products with a token before the update is done, they can still access the organization.
