Access Tokens

Access Tokens allow a developer to authenticate SDK requests on behalf of a specific Catalytic user. Each Access Token must be approved by the user on whose behalf it grants access. That approval can be done either explicitly by logging in to the Catalytic Web App and approving a specific Access Token request, or by supplying their email and password when creating a new Access Token.

For more details on creating Access Tokens or how Access Tokens are used to authenticate in the SDK, please see the preceding Authentication section.
