To consume all the public RudderStack APIs, you need an access token associated with your RudderStack account. This guide describes the steps to generate a personal access token and the operations associated with it.

You can create and use the personal access tokens with the permissions specific to your role type. For example, Read-only users can create access tokens with only read-only privileges, Read-Write users with read-only and read-write privileges, and Admin users with all the privileges.

Follow these steps to generate a personal access token:

  1. Log into your RudderStack dashboard.
