API Token Change

Last night my self-hosted app stopped working, and after looking at the logs I was able to determine that my API token had expired. Here’s the error I received:

data: {
 code: 16,
 message: 'invalid auth token: token is expired by 1h12m26s',
 details: []

I was able to replace it by going back to my Tidbyt iOS app and grabbing what was indeed a new token, but I wanted to ask if this is something we should expect to happen periodically? I didn’t see anything in the documentation about an expiration, and I hadn’t opened the Tidbyt iOS app recently or requested a new token. Thanks!

They originally somehow got set to expire after a year. They switched it to never expire, so you in theory shouldn’t have to worry about it…

Edit: this was a few months ago I think, so that change may or may not apply to you and you’re just now seeing it because it did expire.

Thanks! It wouldn’t surprise me if that was the issue–I think I’ve had my Tidbyt around a year at this point.
