Tokens App

The tokens site app enables users to issue and manage access tokens for REST API views used on your SODAR Core based Django site.


Users can use this app to create and delete access tokens. These can be set to expire or work until deleted.



To install this app you must have the django-sodar-core package installed and the projectroles app integrated into your Django site. See the projectroles integration document for instructions.

Django Settings

The siteinfo app is available for your Django site after installing django-sodar-core. Add the app into THIRD_PARTY_APPS as follows:

    # ...

URL Configuration

In the Django URL configuration file, add the following line under urlpatterns to include siteinfo URLs in your site.

urlpatterns = [
    # ...
    url(r'^tokens/', include('tokens.urls')),

Register Plugin

To register the siteinfo site app plugin, run the following management command:

$ ./ syncplugins

You should see the following output:

Registering Plugin for tokens.plugins.SiteAppPlugin


When logged in to SODAR, you can find the “API Tokens” link in your user dropdown menu in the top right corner of the site.

Select “Create Token” from the “Token Operations” dropdown to create a new token. You will only see the token once, so make sure to copy it to clipboard at this point.

Deleting existing tokens can be done from the token list.
