Set scopes for an API token

API tokens are used by administrators to manage a range of tasks using the Koordinates administration API. 

Administrators can set the scopes for an API token by creating an API key through the user interface on their Koordinates site.

Please note that, at this stage, this functionality is only available to sites that are hosted in Koordinates cloud. This means that this functionality is not available to administrators of the LINZ Data Service, the LRIS Data Portal and the MfE Data Service.
