Hi Adobe,

Is there a way I can eliminate the security token requirements for using the APIs and just use username/ password instead.

There is a provision for OAuth authentication in Blazemeter, did you explore that? This might be helpful: https://api.blazemeter.com/api-monitoring/#authentication

Exchanging JWT tokens by access token is the recommended way to interact with/ access APIs as this would ensure the authorization happens again post token expiry (24 hours). There would be security concerns otherwise.

Why would you want to skip it if enhanced security is available oob?

Primarily we use blazemeter to monitor our APIs, for adobe I think we can work on progamitcally generate the access token but the problem is how do we Integrate this into our monitoring tool. The APIs that we used earlier had api-user and api-key based authentication which worked fine in our monitoring tool. Hence I was thinking of a way I can eliminate the OOB access token requirements and instead used username /key combination. Any other solutions if you can provide me for monitoring Adobee APIs would also be much appreciated.
