API

Personal Access Tokens

In the API tab, you can generate personal access tokens needed for authorization while working with Crowdin API v2. Treat personal access tokens like passwords and keep them secret. Use tokens as environmental variables instead of hardcoding them into your scripts.

Creating a Personal Access Token

When creating a new personal access token, you can select specific scopes and, if needed, limit the visibility of resources for the selected scopes using the Granular access option. For example, you can create a token that should interact only with a specific project and have no access to others. As a result, only the selected projects will be gained when retrieving a list of all projects.

If a resource wasn’t selected during the personal access token creation, but you still try to access it with its ID, the 404 Not Found response will be received.

You can create as many personal access tokens as you need from your Crowdin account.

To create a new personal access token, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Account Settings and go to the API tab.
  2. Click New Token.
    New Token
  3. In the appeared dialog, specify the token name to be able to identify it later.
  4. Select the necessary set of scopes.
  5. (Optional) To limit access to specific resources, select Granular access.
    Note: If Granular access is selected, ensure to select some resources for the selected scopes.
  6. Depending on the selected scopes, select Grant access to selected projects, Grant access to selected TMs, and Grant access to selected Glossaries.
  7. Click Select projects, Select glossaries, Select TMs and respectively select the needed resources.
    Granular Access
  8. Click Create.

After generating a new token, be sure to record it right away. For security purposes, it will not be shown again.

Revoking a Personal Access Token

You might need to revoke a personal access token if you no longer use it or suspect it has been compromised.

To revoke a personal access token, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Account Settings and go to the API tab.
  2. Find the necessary token in the list and click Revoke next to it to delete a personal access token and remove its access.
