API Users are able to be assigned access tokens which allow you to authenticate with the API. TrackVia uses access tokens to verify a user's identity and permission level when accessing the API. Tokens ensure account security by limiting API access and enforcing permissions. A TrackVia
Super Admin has the ability to create up to 100 unique access tokens, each with its own expiration date and set of permissions. Actions that use the access token will be performed by and that user will be displayed in the appropriate

API Users are a special kind of user and are used only for API connections and integrations. Designating a user as an

- Bypass Single Sign On (SSO).
API Usersbypass SSO login in order to prevent their access tokens from inadvertently expiring due to SSO policies.
- Ignore password expiration policies.

- Have permissions managed like any other user.
API Userswill still need to be put in a properly configured role in order to have read, write, or delete permissions in an account.
