This will open a side panel in which you will be able to select the expiration date from the calendar and the expiration hour. The description is used only for you to easily identify the token. For instance, if you plan to have an integration with multiple applications, you can generate a token for each of them in order to have a better control over each.

Use the 'Token' field to specify your custom token consisting of 30 characters. Then press the Add button. If you wish to use the pre-generated token, just press the Add button without modifying this field.

How to change expiration date for existing tokens

You can change the expiration date of the token by clicking the Edit API Token button in the left area. Make any necessary adjustment to the token expiration date in the side menu that appears.
