Manage Bearer Tokens

Use bearer tokens to authenticate grant and control permissions for entities using the Airship API, sending custom events into the system, or supporting a Real-Time Data Streaming integration.

For details about adding events from external systems, e.g., CRM or POS databases, see the Server-Side Custom Events API documentation.
