Element tokens are the unique strings that Cloud Elements uses to verify the identity of instances. This token is used in the Authorization header sent in many requests including all requests that use a specific instance. You may have seen some requests in our API docs require the element token to be provided in the Authorization header like so:
Finding the element token:
- From the Elements tab, click on the blue bubble which has the number of instances you currently have active for the underlying element.
- While hovering over the desired instance, click "View Token".
- The token should be displayed along with a convenient button which will copy the token to your keyboard if clicked.
