Start by navigating to your profile page while logged into my Socrata domain and scrolling to the bottom. In the section titled Applications, click on Manage. On this page, click Create New Application.
Fill in the sections for Name and Description. (For example, you could call the app token “DataSync token” and as a description enter “App token used for updating datasets on ‘x’ domain”.)
You do not need to enter a Callback Prefix for the purpose of updating data via DataSync. Once you app token is generated, you can copy and paste it into the authentication details in DataSync. Once you’ve filled this field in, DataSync will remember it each time you open the program on your computer.
You can read more about the creation and use of App Tokens on our dev site at https://dev.socrata.com/docs/app-tokens.html.
