    Access Tokens

    From GoCD server version 19.2.0 onwards, you will be able to create personal access tokens to access GoCD API(s). This will allow users to make an API call without specifying their credentials (username & password) as a part of API request headers.

    Usage instructions

    1. A token can be used to access GoCD APIs and cctray.xml by passing it in API header.

      Before 19.2.0

      curl 'https://ci.example.com/go/api/pipelines/pipeline1/status' \
             -u 'username:password'

      Going forward

      curl 'https://ci.example.com/go/api/pipelines/pipeline1/status' \
             -H 'Authorization: Bearer 6A7B48094CC552B9A2DF0AFADAF50D28F0646070'
    2. A token can not be used to create or access any access token related API(s).

    3. Login using access token is not allowed through web UI.

    4. Once a token is revoked, the user will not be able to activate it again.

    5. All tokens belonging to a user will be revoked automatically as soon as the user is deleted from GoCD.

      • Note: These tokens will not be visible again even if the same user is added back to GoCD.
