API Tokens

Netskope Cloud Exchange exposes a REST API to enable nearly every equivalent GUI command to be programmatically triggered. However, each REST API call requires valid credentials. Users who are given API access will be able to create a Client ID and Client Secret. Note, this is NOT the same API token that you use for communicating with your Netksope tenant.

You can create API tokens by going to Settings > Users and clicking on the API Tokens tab.

  1. Admins can create new API tokens by clicking Create new token, which opens a form to create new tokens at the same credentialed level as the user has in the GUI.

  2. Admins can copy the Client Secret using the copy button, and Client ID and Client Secret can be used to access Cloud Exchange APIs.

  3. Users can fill in a description and expiry days for the token.
