We’ve revised the format of all new authentication tokens issued by Netlify.
You will be able to easily identify your Netlify authentication tokens by their prefix.
Existing authentication tokens will be unaffected. This format change applies only to new authentication tokens we issue. You’re encouraged to create new authentication tokens to replace your existing ones, but this is entirely optional.
All Netlify authentication tokens will start with a
nf prefix followed by a single identifying character. They are:
nfpfor Personal Access Tokens.
nfcfor Netlify CLI tokens.
nfofor OAuth access tokens.
nfufor app.netlify.com tokens.
nfbfor Netlify build tokens.
No operational impact to our customers is expected. The only scenarios to consider are these unlikely ones:
- If you’re validating Netlify authentication tokens using a regular expression then you’ll need to update it, or
- If you’re storing your Netlify authentication tokens in a fixed size field in a datastore then you’ll need to increase capacity for the token to 40 characters.
