Tokens#

In Cape there are two types of tokens that can be created to authenticate with different parts of Cape's architecture- user tokens and organization tokens.

User Tokens#

Individual user tokens are used to identify you to the Cape Coordinator, so you can register DataViews, create and run Cape Jobs and perform other necessary functions. See the pycape Usage docs for instructions on how to use your user token to log into the pycape Python library.

User tokens can be generated from your User Settings.

Organization Tokens#

Organizational tokens are used to run Cape Workers. These tokens facilitate the secure sharing of data across all workers that are collaborating on a project using Cape privacy. and are stored as environment variables.

Organizational tokens can be generated from your Organization Settings.
