Manage access tokens in Wowza Video

Access tokens are used with integrations. There are two types of access tokens:

Personal Access Token – Available to all users with a Wowza Video subscription. These tokens are specific to a user and can be used in API calls to do quick tests or manual actions that don't need to persist if the user leaves the organization.

System Access Token – Available to organization owners. These tokens are specific to the organization and transcend individual users who come into and leave an organization. For this reason, system access tokens are best used for integrations that go into production environments and need to persist after specific users leave an organization. 

If you're an org owner, you can manage your organization's system and personal access tokens through the Token Management page. If you're a Wowza Video user, and not an org owner, you can generate a personal access token on the Token Management page.

Review the Token Management UI reference articleto read about all of the configuration options along with their definitions to manage and generate access tokens.

To view the Token Management page, click your user profile in the upper left of any screen, then click Token Management under Organization
