For this example, I have picket the longest possible expiration period, but you can decide for a shorter period if you'd like. Remember to enable the Read & write scope. Next, click the Create button and copy the generated token.

Bugs created by elmah.io will have the CreatedBy set to the user generating the personal access token. If you want to identify bugs created by elmah.io, you should create the token from a new user (like elmahio@yourdomain.com).

Paste the token copied in the previous step into the Token textbox. In the Organization textbox, input the name of your organization.
