Log in to YouTrack
YouTrack supports two methods of authentication that you can use to log in and access data from an external client.
|Permanent Token Authorization||Permanent tokens enable token-based authorization for REST API calls in scripts and applications. This feature increases security for YouTrack integrations with external services. |
We recommend that you use permanent tokens for authorization with the YouTrack REST API.
|OAuth 2.0 Authorization||OAuth 2.0 is a protocol that lets your application request an access token from YouTrack. YouTrack only supports implicit authorization grants.|
We only recommend that you use OAuth 2.0 when your application requires client-side authentication.
