Generate Token

To manage secured communication, every participant that connects to a meeting needs an access token. You can easily generate this token by using your apiKey and secret-key, which you can obtain from the VideoSDK Dashboard.

For development purpose, you can generate a temporary token from VideoSDK Dashboard's API section.


The best practice for obtaining a token involves generating it from your backend server which will help in keeping your credentials safe.
