Why You Need a Server API Token

Server API tokens are used to create integrations between a server application, IoT, bots, or anything that can communciate over HTTPS, and the MindTouch API. Implementations with server API tokens are typically written in server executed languages such as C#, Java, JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Go, and PHP. The token consists of a key and a secret which are used to sign API requests, allowing valid requests through and rejecting invalid or expired requests. The token secret is meant to be kept in a secure place, and should never be shared or sent across the internet in plain text.
