Establish trigger token

Trigger tokens prevent unwanted events from influencing Swarm operations; trigger requests to Swarm without a valid token are ignored.

  1. Log in to Swarm as a super user.
  2. Click your userid, found at the right of the main toolbar.
  3. Select About Swarm.

    The About Swarm dialog appears and Swarm generates an API token if none exists.

  4. Note the trigger token value, from the bottom of the dialog, for use in the next section. Click the token to select it, which makes it easy to copy.
