Linking your Codiga account

If you want to use the code snippets, you need to link your Codiga account using an API token.


An API token is what you need if you want to start an integration with Codiga. It relies on tokens provided by the user.

Go on the API tokens page and generate a new token. You can create multiple tokens and associate a description to them (for example, if you want to have one token for VS Code, one for your CI pipeline, etc.).

Then, go into the Jetbrains settings, search for the configuration section Tools > Codiga API and enter your API Token, as shown below.
