Allow access to API via token

I’ve been using Cloudflare quite some time and it has been great in regards to bot protection. I’ve been tasked with building out some external applications that would be hitting the API endpoints that are behind Cloudflare security. The application is being written in Python and when I send in requests it’s obviously tripping the bot protection, which is why I am here.

I’ve tested multiple settings but I can’t get the configuration working in the way that I want. I don’t even know if its possible tbh. What I am looking to do is generate some type of access token that can be passed into the request that would allow me to bypass the protection. The only thing I’ve gotten to work is specifically bypassing requests from a certain IP address but I’d much rather go the token route so I can distribute tokens to other users as well.

Can anyone help me achieve this type of configuration?
