Q: I am testing API requests to integrate information with Planhat. As I am attempting to do so, I receive the following message in response:
enter host password for user '[PERSONAL ACCESS_TOKEN]'.
How can I get or generate the host password?
A: The token can be passed either using
Authorization Bearer header or
Authorization: Bearer [PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN]
Authorization: Basic [base64encode(PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN:)]
In the last case, "TOKEN" is still enough to access the API, but since by convention a password is also needed you have to add a colon ":" after the token.
You can find further directions in our API documentation here:
tags: "api access token", "api password", "host password"
