Lastly, if you do not have any access tokens, you can create one by navigating to your Elastio Tenant account.

Navigate to the Account Settings page on the top right of any page in the Elastio Tenant. Follow to the tab named API access, then press the “Add New Access Token” button.

On the access token creation page you will have to insert a name for the token and select the scopes for it.
