Access token for API explorer

I’ve installed freeCodeCamp locally and would like to use the API explorer at http://localhost:3000/explorer. How can I get an access token for making API calls with the explorer?

Thank you.

Hello there,

The access token is sent with most requests. So, you can find it in the headers of the client, after you have started up localhost:8000.

Hope this is clear

If I understand correctly, I can find the token using the Network tab in Chrome Dev Tools. For example, I see http://localhost:3000/update-my-current-challenge as a POST request. The Cookie header includes a key-value pair where the key is jwt_access_token. Should I use that token? (Or am I not understanding correctly?)

Yes, you are understanding correctly :+1:
