YouTrack Standalone 2018.3 Help

Log in to YouTrack

YouTrack supports two methods of authentication that you can use to log in and access data from an external client.

Method

Description

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.
