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.
- Click Administration > User Managment > Users.
- Click Create User, or select the name of an existing user.
- Click the API Access tab.
- Click Generate JSON Web Token, and copy the token for login use.
