Secure token-based authorization unable to manage tokens



I am interested in using the secure token-based authorization as mentioned in the 2017.1 guide, but I am unable to create new tokens except for the logged-in user account when the user has system administration privileges.

When I login with a low privileged user, even with the right to self view and update user role, I cannot create a new token. What is the missing role to be at least able to manage tokens for the user himself?

Why can't the root user or another full privileged user not manage tokens?

Hello, thank you for your question.

Please check that your user has Update Self and Read Service permissions.


thanks for your answer, it was the read service permission missing to manage tokens.

Thanks for your help.
