Access token generation in Youtrack/Hub


Currently I'm trying to write an application connection to the REST-Api of our Youtrack installation. For this purpose i would like to use the authorization via permanent token.

I've read several articles in the Youtrack/Hub documentation but I cant figure out how to create the token. In the documentation I found out that in the Hub-Profile of the User there should be an 'Authentication' tab but there isn't. Can somebody help me to make that tab visible or tell me how to create an access token?


We are using: JetBrains Bug & Issue Tracker YouTrack 7.0 Build 29566



Thanks and best regards

Hello, thank you for reaching out!

Does your YouTrack license allow upgrades? Unfortunately permanent tokens aren't available with your YouTrack version, they were introduced in the version 2017.1.
