Hetzner Cloud API token

An API token for the Hetzner Cloud integration is required to access your Hetzner Cloud environment.

You can find the configuration option in the Hetzner Cloud Console. Choose a project and go to Access > API-Tokens to create a new API token.

Make sure to copy the token, because it will not be shown to you again. A token is bound to a project, in order to interact with the API of another project you have to create a new token inside the project.
