Using Sigrid CI or the Sigrid API requires an authentication token. You can create and manage these tokens from your Sigrid account, using the instructions below.
Who should create the token?
- If you want to use Sigrid CI for an existing system that is already part of your Sigrid account: Any Sigrid user account with access to that system can create the token.
- If you want to on-board new systems to your Sigrid account: Also see token permissions for on-boarding new systems.
- If your token is expired: Tokens have a validaty of one year. Please create a new token.
Creating an (new) authentication token
First, sign into sigrid-says.com using your regular Sigrid user account. If you do not have a Sigrid user account, contact your organization’s Sigrid administrator, or contact SIG support at email@example.com.
After signing in, navigate to your user settings page using the menu in the top-right corner.
This page will list all authentication tokens for your Sigrid account. If you’re creating an authentication token for the first time, the list will be empty. You can create a new token using the “create” button.
The dialog requires you to enter a name for the token. This name acts as a textual description for your token, which is helpful when managing multiple tokens. The name is only for information purposes, it does not influence what the token can or cannot do. After entering a name, use the “create” button.
The next dialog will now show the created token. For security reasons, the token is only shown once, so you need to copy/paste or save it right away. If you lose the token after this point, you need to create a new one. Again, this is done for security reasons, and is similar to how e.g. GitHub API tokens are managed.
After you’ve created the token it will be shown in the user settings page.
Revoking a token
Sign in to Sigrid and navigate to the user settings page as explained above. The list of tokens contains a “revoke” button that will immediately revoke the token’s access to Sigrid.
Expiriation of a token
Tokens automatically expire after one year. A month before the expiration date, you as a creator will get multiple notification emails asking you to create a new token.
The systems your tokens can access are inherited from your Sigrid account’s permissions. That means that your permissions can be configured by your Sigrid administrator, from the user management page.
Token permissions for on-boarding new systems
Every Sigrid user is able to on-board new systems. However, you might need to ask your administrator for the right permissions to access “your” system’s analysis results in Sigrid itself.
