How to Generate an Access Token in Polaris

Polaris Personal Access Tokens function like ordinary OAuth access tokens. They are used by client tools for authentication and allowing you to submit jobs. You can create as many tokens as you want and delete tokens that are no longer needed. Newly-created tokens display only until the first time you refresh the page. For security reasons, tokens are not stored. Synopsys recommends that you save the token in a text file.
