Obtaining API Token
An API (Application Programming Interface) token is a unique identifier used for authentication when accessing an API. It is necessary because it allows secure communication between different software applications and ensures that only authorized users can access the API. In summary, an API token is important because it helps maintain security and control access to sensitive data and functionalities within an application.
If you choose "read", it will only do download actions; if you choose "write", it will also do upload actions via API and CLI. Both scopes can be used together.
Having a meaningful name for your token will allow you to easily find out which token is the computer, the server, the CI/CD, or the token you accidentally expose. Yeah. It sounds bad, but it happens.
