Users can create personal access tokens and use them in place of passwords for Git over HTTPS, or to authenticate when using the Bitbucket Data Center and Server REST API . As an administrator, you can edit and revoke tokens, and set global token settings.

Editing and revoking tokens

As an administrator, you can’t create tokens for users. However, once a user has created a token, you can edit or revoke it.

To edit or revoke a token:

  1. Go to  > Users.

  2. Search for the user and click on them.

  3. Open the Personal access tokens tab.

  4. Click Edit or Revoke.

Clicking Edit will allow you to change a token’s name or its permissions. If it has an expiry date, however, you will not be able to modify it. Once a token’s expiry date has been set, it can’t be changed.

Require token expiry

By default, when a user is creating a personal access token, they can choose whether they want it to expire. As a system administrator, for added security you can make setting a token expiry a requirement.

To require token expiry:

  1. Go to  > Personal access tokens.

  2. Choose Yes for Expiry required.

  3. Enter the Max days until expiry.

  4. Click Save.
