New User - Why do I need to set up an API token now?

HI there, Noob here. I’m going through the new user “Getting Started” learning and I’m at the “Create an API token” step. Why do I need to do this as part of set up? Do I have to do this now? I don’t have a use case for this yet. Halp.

I can see how it may be able to confuse some people.

I think you should see it as an opportunity to configure it, under the condition that you need it.


You’re indicating here that you do not have any use case or need to use the Cloudflare API right now.

I would therefore ignore the step, so that you are NOT setting up any API tokens.
