OAuth Access Tokens

OAuth Access Tokens are short-lived (they expire in 24 hours) and they are tied to a specific user's set of permissions.

CARTO APIs are securitized by OAuth 2.0, using an OAuth Access Token you'll be able to do operations and call our APIs on behalf of a given user, but you're expected to have a mechanism to renew this allowance.

How to get an OAuth Access Token

To get an OAuth Access Token, you need to create and use an OAuth Client.
