Set an Access Token

The first time you attempt to access a Tugboat resource in the Command Line Interface, you’ll be asked for an Access Token.

To set an Access Token:

  1. In Tugboat’s web interface, go to User Name -> Access Tokens, or click this link.
  2. Click the Generate New Token option.
  3. You’ll be asked to give the Access Token a description; for example, “Command Line Tool”; enter a description and press the Generate button.
  4. Make sure you save your Access Token somewhere safe, as you won’t be able to see it again!
  5. When you run the CLI, and attempt to access a resource, you’ll be asked for an Access Token; paste it in and hit Y to remember it.

Now you’re all set to use the Tugboat Command Line Interface!
