Creating Gitlab Access Tokens and Authkeys
Creating a Gitlab Access Token
Log on to Gitlab and open the Preferences page
Choose the Access Tokens option on the left of the page:
The Access Tokens page will open with a form to fill. There are two required fields and several optional scopes:
Note: Gitlab Personal Access Tokens are required to have an expiration date. Care must be taken to ensure that the Pliant authentication and Access Tokens are updated before the expiration date.
All scopes are optional. However, enough scopes must be granted to allow the Pliant authentication to perform it’s functions.
The access token is then created. Be sure to copy the token to a safe location. It will not be visible in this interface again.
