The token seed is no longer used, and was removed from the user interface in Crowd 2.6.2. The token seed has not been used for application authentication since Crowd 1.5 and since 2.6.1 it is no longer used as a salt in password encoding.

The token seed is a unique key for each site deployment of Crowd. This key is used when generating tokens for an authenticated application.


To specify the token seed,

  1. Log in to the Crowd Administration Console.
  2. Click the 'Administration' tab in the top navigation bar.
  3. The 'General Options' screen will appear. Now you can either:
    • Type the new key into the 'Token Seed' field, then click the 'Update' button.
    • Click the 'Generate' button to create a random key automatically.
