Codacy API Tokens

Codacy API Tokens allow you to authenticate when using the Codacy API. You must generate a Codacy API Token and include it in the headers of your API calls as described on the Codacy API documentation.

To generate a Codacy API Token, open your account, tab Access management, and click the button Create API token.


You can create multiple Codacy API Tokens. This can be useful to have a more flexible control when revoking a specific token.

Creating an API token

To revoke access to the Codacy API, you must remove the corresponding Codacy API Token from the list. After this, all applications or services using that token to access the Codacy API will fail to authenticate and will receive the following error reply:

{"error":"not found"}
