What is a token?

A token is a unique generated value that is assigned to each first time user, signifying that the user is known. When the user attempts to re-enter the system, their unique key (sometimes generated from their hardware combination and IP data, and other times randomly generated by the server which knows them) is used to prove that they’re the same user as before.

The token is typically a long string of generated characters which follow a set of generation rules specified by the authority that creates them

Why we need it

In our REST API a  token is used to identify the customer and to check  what kind of operation the customer is allowed to do: only to read the records from database or to add new records or to update and delete records or maybe to execute any other specific actions.
The token can be obtained by a simple call or mail to our support
