Create & Manage API Tokens

An API token is a unique identifier that is used to authorize a user or application to use an API. InstaWP lets you create and manage API Tokens, which allows you to access the API via Postman, GitHub Actions or using any programming language.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to:

Create a New API Token
Manage API Tokens

Let’s get started 🚀

Create a New API Token



Step 1: Sign In to your InstaWP account to access the dashboard.



Step 2: Click on the Profile icon from the top-right corner and select the My Account option from the dropdown menu.



This will take you to the Profile Settings page.



Step 3: Select API Token option from the left menu of the interface.



This will take you to the API token page.



Here, you can create a new API token by giving it a name and granting permission (read-only or read-write) for third-party services to authenticate with the application on your behalf.



Step 4: After entering the token name and granting permission, click on the CREATE button.



A new dialog window will appear, asking you to copy your new API token.



Manage API Tokens



Once an API token is created, you can manage your API token by performing the following operations:

Change Permission
Delete Token



To change permission, click on the Permission button corresponding to that API token.



A new dialog window will appear, asking you to checkmark the permissions (read-only or read-write).



After check marked, click on the Save button.



To delete any of your existing tokens if they are no longer needed, click on the Delete button.



A new dialog window will appear, asking you to delete this API token.



Click on the DELETE button.



Then, you will be redirected to the API token page.
