Create OAuth 1 API tokens

OAuth 1 permanent tokens consist of a token, token secret, consumer, and consumer secret. OAuth 1 permanent tokens are no longer created by default and can only be generated for existing integrations that didn't migrate to OAuth 2 yet.


Make sure you have this feature enabled for your account. Contact your Bynder Customer Success Manager for information and help with the setup.
