Fastgen provides two key types of tokens: API Tokens and Integration Tokens. Each type serves a unique purpose in securing and facilitating access to your project’s resources.
API Tokens are primarily used for authorizing specific API requests. They are designed with a narrow scope and are typically used for short-term validity, enhancing security and access control in your projects.
- Use Cases: Ideal for authorizing individual API requests where precise access control is needed.
- Short-Term Validity: Frequently regenerated or rotated to maintain high security.
Integration Tokens are essential for granting third-party tools and systems broad access to your Fastgen project resources. This includes access to basic information, workflows, routes, and more, allowing for seamless integration and interaction.
