Personal Access Tokens (PATs) allow a PoliteMail user to delegate revokable permissions to other users for use with the PoliteMail API. PATs can be granted either to internal PoliteMail users, or external vendors or users. By using a PAT, a user can authenticate as an existing PoliteMail user for a limited time when using the PoliteMail API.
Please note that the same PoliteMail user permission level as the creator of the token will be applied to the vendor. Since only Admins can create Personal Access Tokens, the user will have Admin rights.
To create a PAT, go to PoliteMail > Preferences > Personal Access Tokens.
Click the Add button. Give the PAT a name and set an expiration date. Click the Copy button to copy the PAT. It is important to paste the PAT somewhere safe and secure as it will disappear once you close the create window.
Now you'll send the PAT to the user, who will use to authenticate against the PoliteMail API. When the PAT expires, you must issue a new one.
PATs can be revoked at any time. To revoke, simply click on the Revoke button in the Personal Access Tokens tab.
