  • npm token create [--read-only] [--cidr=<cidr-ranges>]: Create a new authentication token. It can be --read-only, or accept a list of CIDR ranges with which to limit use of this token. This will prompt you for your password, and, if you have two-factor authentication enabled, an otp.

    Currently, the cli can not generate automation tokens. Please refer to the docs website for more information on generating automation tokens.

  • npm token revoke <token|id>: Immediately removes an authentication token from the registry. You will no longer be able to use it. This can accept both complete tokens (such as those you get back from npm token create, and those found in your .npmrc), and ids as seen in the parseable or json output of npm token list. This will NOT accept the truncated token found in the normal npm token list output.

Configuration

read-only

  • Default: false
  • Type: Boolean

This is used to mark a token as unable to publish when configuring limited access tokens with the npm token create command.

cidr

  • Default: null
  • Type: null or String (can be set multiple times)

This is a list of CIDR address to be used when configuring limited access tokens with the npm token create command.

registry

The base URL of the npm registry.

otp

  • Default: null
  • Type: null or String

This is a one-time password from a two-factor authenticator. It's needed when publishing or changing package permissions with npm access.

If not set, and a registry response fails with a challenge for a one-time password, npm will prompt on the command line for one.
