- Defined in:
This provides a handy token that is “perishable”, meaning the token is only good for a certain amount of time.
This is useful for resetting password, confirming accounts, etc. Typically during these actions you send them this token in an email. Once they use the token and do what they need to do, that token should expire.
Don’t worry about maintaining the token, changing it, or expiring it yourself. Authlogic does all of this for you. See the sub modules for all of the tools Authlogic provides to you.
