- class BaseWebAPIToken(*args, **kwargs)¶
Base class for an access token used for authenticating with the API.
Each token can be used to authenticate the token’s owner with the API, without requiring a username or password to be provided. Tokens can be revoked, and new tokens added.
Tokens can store policy information, which will later be used for restricting access to the API.
- save(*args, **kwargs)¶
Save the token.
If the token is being updated, the
webapi_token_updatedsignal will be emitted.
- classmethod validate_policy(policy)¶
Validate an API policy.
This will check to ensure that the policy is in a suitable format and contains the information required in a format that can be parsed.
If a failure is found, a ValidationError will be raised describing the error and where it was found.
