Personal access tokens are the alternative passwords you can use to authorize 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.
A personal access token is required for authorization in Crowdin Enterprise in the following situations:
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 or group and have no access to others.
