Acrolinx super administrators can create API tokens for the users they manage via the Acrolinx Dashboard. API tokens let you check content without having to interact with a browser or other software. This is useful if you want Acrolinx to run regular automated checks on your content.
You can't create API tokens for the built-in admin user.
To create an API token for an Acrolinx user account, follow these steps:
The API token will appear in a dialog box.
Sign in to the Dashboard.
Go to Users, search for the specific user, and click their name. This opens the User Administration page for that user.
Navigate to the tab API TOKEN, and click CREATE AN API TOKEN.
As soon as you generate an API token, save it somewhere secure (like a password manager) so that you can access it again. Once you leave the User Settings or User Administration page, the API token will disappear from the display.
API tokens generated in the Dashboard are valid for 4 years, even if the user's password changes in the meantime. Each user can only have one active API token. When you generate a new API token for a user, the existing token will become invalid.
