2. OAuth token

OAuth is a widely used security standard that enables secure access to protected resources.

Each token's creation includes the scopes letting anyone can have access to this token.


      • Lists: Write and Read permission - Read permission gives access to list's information and Write permission access to edit them.
        • If a token has to Write permission, it has also read permission at the same time.
