Depending how your school has configured Submitty and security, an Authentication Token may be required in some instances instead of your password.

Creating a new Authentication Token

Navigate to the “Authentication Token” page using the link on the left menu bar. Press the “Create New VCS Authentication Token” to create a new authentication token. If you use Submitty from multiple computers/devices, you are recommended to create a different token for each machine, and give each token a descriptive name and appropriate expiration date.

Once you generate a token, the newly-generated token will be displayed at the top of the page. NOTE: Do not share this token with others. Treat it like a password.

Save this value in a secure place – it will not be displayed if you reload this webpage. If you forget or lose your token you can always revoke old ones and recreate a new token.

Using your Authentication Token

Your VCS / GIT Authentication Token can be used to access a Submitty-hosted VCS / GIT repository. Use your Authentication Token when prompted for a password.

NOTE: This token will likely be automatically saved and managed by your local operating system. You should not need to re-enter the token each time you pull or push code from the repository on the remote server.
