API Tokens

Token Management

An API Access Token is required in order to authenticate the Calibre Command Line (CLI) or Node.js API

API tokens carry many privileges, so be sure to keep all of them secret.

Tokens can be managed by visiting the API Tokens page, which can be found under the team drop-down.

Only admin users are able to view or manage API tokens.

Environment variables

The CALIBRE_API_TOKEN environment variable should be used in order to set the API Access Token for use with CLI, Node.js API or GraphQL APIs.
