Creating EdgeAuth tokens in the Portal
Create EdgeAuth tokens in the Portal via the EdgeAuth tab on either the Channel or Room for which you want to create a token. Channel pages also provide an option to create Permalinks, which can be used for publishing or subscribing to the Channel.
Access the token creation tab by clicking on a Channel or Room Name in the Channel or Room list.
Click on the "EdgeAuth" option to the right, which will show the EdgeAuth token creation page.
The Link Type option allows you to choose either Viewing or Publishing.
If you select "Publishing", an additional option will appear to select Quality Capabilities.
To change the quality level from the default value, click the
x next to the quality name to remove the default. Select the desired quality. Only one quality level can be selected.
Select the capabilities for the link using the gray Capabilities box.
The Question Mark icon in the Capabilities box will take you to the API documentation for capabilities.
You can create a new tag in the Tag box, or apply existing tags using Apply Tags. You can optionally include the Origin Stream ID in that box.
Select the Media Input type.
As you select your options, the Portal will generate tokens, as well as a permalink if created for a channel.
Click the "Copy" button to copy the token or the permalink to your clipboard. In a permalink, the EdgeAuth token is everything between "edgeToken=" and the "#" before the channel alias.
