Generate a JSON web token

You can include a JSON Web Token to enable communication with N-able N-central APIs using either a traditional username/password combination, a username/JSON Web Token combination, or only specifying the JSON Web Token.

You can use the web token to log in as an API-only user and access Automation Manager. The web tokens also enable you to login to N-able N-central with a Google Google Workspace account.

JSON web tokens are generated within a user's account information. You can generate them when setting up a new user or for an existing user.

  1. Click Administration User ManagmentUsers.
  2. Click Create User, or select the name of an existing user.
  3. Click the API Access tab.
  4. Click Generate JSON Web Token, and copy the token for login use.
