Retrieve the Sysdig API Token

A valid security token is required to use custom scripts and applications with the Sysdig API.

When using the Sysdig API with custom scripts or applications, an API security token, specific to each user and team, must be supplied. To retrieve your API security token:

  1. Log in to Sysdig Monitor or Sysdig Secure.

  2. Select Settings from the user menu.

  3. Select User Profile.

    The Sysdig Monitor or Sysdig Secure API token is displayed depending on your interface and team.

  4. You can Copy the token for use, or click the Reset Token button to generate a new one.

When reset, the previous token will immediately become invalid and you will need to make appropriate changes to your programs or scripts.
