An IAM token (or just token) is a unique sequence of characters issued to a user after authentication. The user needs this token for authorization in the Yandex.Cloud API and access to resources.
Specify the received IAM token when accessing Yandex.Cloud resources via the API. Pass the IAM token in the
Authorization header in the following format:
Authorization: Bearer <IAM-TOKEN>
The IAM token is valid for 12 hours. After that period expires, get a new IAM token.
In the management console and the command line interface (CLI), the token is obtained and used without the user needing to do anything.
