Token authentication

To prevent unauthorized/unauthenticated users from accessing the data, every interaction with the 3d Signals API must contain an API Token. 

Authorized users can receive a token when presenting their username and password.

The API token expires after 24 hours. A new API token is required for a new request after 24 hours.


The client configuration includes a set of permissions (also called scopes). A permission is a variable parameter that controls the set of resources and operations that are allowed per user.
