Personal Access Tokens

Personal access tokens are the alternative passwords you can use to authenticate third-party applications and scripts into Crowdin Enterprise.

Treat personal access tokens like passwords and keep them secret. Use tokens as environmental variables instead of hardcoding them into your scripts.

Use Cases

A personal access token is required to authenticate to Crowdin Enterprise in the following situations:

  • To use Crowdin CLI for managing and synchronizing localization resources in Crowdin Enterprise.
  • To automate localization workflow via Crowdin Enterprise API.
  • To use Android Studio plugin to pull source content stored in strings.xml or other .xml files you specify from your Android project.

Creating a Personal Access Token

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

Follow these steps to generate a new token:

  1. In the upper-right corner, click your profile photo and select Account Settings. Account Settings
  2. Select Access Tokens tab and click New Token. New Token
  3. Give new Personal access token a name to be able to identify it later.
  4. Click Generate New Token.

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 in case you no longer use it or if you suspect it has been compromised. You can delete Personal access token anytime.

For this, go to your Account Settings, Access Tokens tab and find the necessary token in the list. To delete a Personal access token and remove its access, click Revoke next to the necessary token shown in the list.
