Getting Your Coveo Cloud V2 Platform Access Token

Whenever you successfully log into the Coveo Cloud 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 are authenticated in the platform.

If your identity has access to a Coveo Cloud organization, you can use this token to authenticate calls to any of the Coveo Cloud 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 Cloud platform REST API operations, such as the one that allows you to create an organization (see Creating a Coveo Cloud V2 Organization).

To get your Coveo Cloud platform access token:

  1. In your web browser, open your developer tools.
  2. Log into the Coveo Cloud platform (see Logging in to Coveo Cloud V2).
  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 Cloud platform access token.
