Creates a temporary access Token.


After verifying the permissions of an MQTT client, the application server calls this method to request a Token for this client from the MQTT Server. For more information, see Overview of token authentication.


The limit of requests per user is 500 times per second. For special needs, please submit work Order application.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.

Request parameters

Parameter Type Required Example Description
Action String Yes ApplyToken

The operation that you want to perform. Value: ApplyToken

Actions String Yes R

The permission type of the Token. Valid values:

  • R: only read permission is available.
  • W: only write permission is available.
  • R,W: WAF has both read and write permissions. R and W they must be separated by commas (,).
ExpireTime Long Yes 1578399620000

The timestamp when the Token expires. The minimum interval between expiration and expiration is 60 seconds. The maximum interval is 30 days. If the validity period of the value is longer than 30 days, no error is returned. However, the actual validity period is 30 days.

InstanceId String Yes post-cn-0pp12gl****

The ID of the MQTT instance, which must match the client-used instance ID. In the console instance details page.

Region ID String Yes mq-internet-access

The Region where the message queue for MQTT instance is located.

Resources String Yes TopicA/+

The resource name that indicates an MQTT Topic. Multiple topics are separated by commas (,). Each Token can run and operate a maximum of 100 resources. If there are multiple topics, sort these topics in lexicographic order.

The resource parameters registered while applying for the Token support the MQTT wildcard syntax, which includes one-level wildcard character (+) and multi-level wildcard character (#).

For example, if you specify resources if the value is "Topic1/+", the client can operate any Topic of "Topic1/xxx"; If you specify resources if Topic1/# is specified, the consumer can operate on any level of Topic1/xxx/xxx/xxx topics.

Note For more information about these parameters, see Common parameters and Make API requests.
