A unique API token is assigned to each Carbon Black EDR user. It serves as the key authentication mechanism when making calls to the APIs. Users can reset their API token at any time.

Carbon Black EDR has RESTful APIs to create custom scripts for interactions. These are described at https://developer.carbonblack.com/reference/enterprise-response/.

Note: When a user’s API token is reset, any affected custom scripts or integrations that use the API token must also be updated.


  1. Log in to the Carbon Black EDR console with the account whose API token will be changed.
  2. Click Username > My Profile.
  3. Click API Token.
  4. Click the Reset API Token button.
    A notification briefly appears notifying you that the API token has been reset.
