How to see auth token for existing node?

Hello Guys!

I would like to see auth tiken for existing node (Windows), how can I do it? Looks NODE ID at the top of dashboard is not what. In config.yaml I didn’t found too.


Once an AUTH token is used it should not be reused, so will not be available anywhere unless you recorded it originally.

What are you trying to achieve?

No way to see it, it’s doesn’t recorded anywhere and used only once to sign your new identity. You cannot reuse it after that, and if you need a new one - just request it as usual.

Please note, if you want to setup the next node, you must generate a new identity with

./identity create storagenode2

command and then sign it with a new authorization token

./identity authorize storagenode2 your@email:26rndurutmi5i85orlejdn...

The path to the identity from the example above will be %AppData%\Storj\Identity\storagenode2

We usually recommend to copy/move your identity from the system disk to the disk with data and use this new path in the storagenode configuration, because the identity without its data is useless and data without its identity is useless too.
