I have a message on Sophos Central -
Your API token Migrate will expire in 5 days
What do I do?
Hi Dan Petford
The API token is valid for a year, you can click on Renew to extend the validity of the token. Please check this link for more information.
Thanks, I'm not a Super User and my manager is who is on holiday, if this expires is there any implications or will it be ok for his return?
any script or application your organization is using that leverages that token will fail with a permissions denied error.
The api is for data ingestion (events and endpoint states) so if you have say a syslog server that is pulling events through the api and the token expires - that pull will fail.
You can then generate a new token and feed the creds into the script/application and it will start working again.
Thanks, so if I don't renew will it cause any issues to end users or can I wait for my manager to return as I'm not a super user so can't rnew?
I can't really answer that - because I don't know what the token is being used for.
However, the API token expiring will NOT affect the operations of the Sophos Central Endpoint installed on the clients.
