Whenever you successfully log in to the Coveo Platform, the platform automatically generates or refreshes an access token for you. This token is valid for four hours, and is linked to the identity with which you’re authenticated in the platform.

To get your Coveo access token:

  1. In your web browser, open the developer tools.

  2. Log in to the Coveo Platform.

  3. In the developer tools, typically under the Storage or Application tab, locate and inspect the item in the local storage.
