Get an Access Token

Get a specific Access Token by ID. Note that the returned Access Token will include other metadata but will not include the serialized token string, and therefore cannot be used to authenticate SDK requests. The serialized token string is only available when you first create a new Access Token. As a security measure, only a hash of the serialized token is stored.


Permissions Required

You can only get metadata for Access Tokens that you created, unless you are a team administrator. Team admins can get metadata for all Access Tokens on your Catalytic team.

returnsPromise<AccessToken>The requested Access Token


 * This example demonstrates getting an Access Token by ID

const { CatalyticClient } = require('@catalytic/sdk');

const catalytic = new CatalyticClient('YOUR_SERIALIZED_ACCESS_TOKEN_STRING');

// Accesses the `id` of the AccessToken constructed from 'YOUR_SERIALIZED_ACCESS_TOKEN_STRING'
const accessTokenID =;

// `accessTokenMetaDataOnly` will be the same as
const accessTokenMetaDataOnly = await catalytic.accessTokens.get(accessTokenID);
