Overview

Mapbox access tokens are essential to access Mapbox’s API endpoints and use Mapbox tools and services.

To create the token, we need to log in or sign up to our Mapbox account. On the top navigation bar, we’ll click the “Tokens” button.

Go to the "Tokens" tab

This will direct us to a new page where we’ll provide the token name. There are no restrictions on naming a token, so we can name it however we like.

Here, we have to select our token’s public and private scopes. We can also specify any URLs to restrict the use of our access token. Once all specifications are complete, we’ll click the “Create token” button.
