Create a new Permanent Token

To be able to create a token for accessing the AssistNow and CellLocate services, you must have a Thingstream domain. Once you log in into the domain you can see the  Location Services menu item in the sidebar of the portal. Click on it.

Clicking on the Add Location Thing button will open the creation dialog as shown below

Click the Generate Tokens button and select the service(s) that you wish to use.

After entering the required information and clicking Next, you will be prompted to select the plans that the token will be associated to. 

Please note that if you have selected more than one service, you must choose a plan for each service.

Also note that only one token for each service can use the free developer plan, so if you have already selected the developer plan for another active token you will not be able to select it again. 

When you have created the first tokens you can see and manage them in the tokens management page.

Manage Tokens

Clicking anywhere on the token row will open the token details dialog shown below.

In this dialog you can manage all the aspects of the token.
