Get Your Coveo Platform Access Token

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.

If your identity has access to a Coveo organization, you can use this token to authenticate calls to any of the Coveo Platform REST API operations for which your identity has the required privileges in this organization.

Otherwise, you can still use this token to call certain global Coveo Platform REST API operations, such as the one that allows you to create an organization (see Create a Coveo Trial Organization).

To get your Coveo Platform access token:

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

  2. Log in to the Coveo Platform (see Log in to Coveo Cloud).

  3. In your developer tools, typically under the Storage or Application tab, locate and inspect the https://platform.cloud.coveo.com cookie.

    In this cookie, the access_token field value is your Coveo Platform access token.
