Create Users Token
IMPORTANT To be able to use this endpoint you must set the ENV VAR (CREATE_TOKENS_FOR_USERS=true).
Create a user authentication token. This is the same type of session token a user would get via login and will expire the same way. Requires user-generate-access-token permission.
Example if you use snaps:
1
echo "CREATE_TOKENS_FOR_USERS=true" > /var/snap/rocketchat-server/common/create-tokens.env
2
sudo systemctl restart snap.rocketchat-server.rocketchat-server.service
