    Default

    If you are asking can you generate it on your own and send command to server then answer is.. NO
    Token has to be generated on the server and returned back to your application to be used again.

    Please look into the SOAP API to get the token

    Default token

    no i will call my external API whenever zimbra token checks for validity ie i think thru isExpire() method and return back thru my external API to tell that token created thru my API is valid and so Zimbra token is also valid dont check it and continue with zimbra.
    What do u say thats what i am planning.

    I donít know your application architecture and i assume you talking bout ADMIN TOKEN
    Generally Admin token is valid for 12-24 hours based on you settings in Admin GUI and unless your application needs to retain the token more than 24 hours you really donít need to worry about it expiring in short while.

    Default token

    No,
    I will explain ,i have my own application for authentiaction and it returns me a token and has its own expiry time,u supply yr credentials and it tell yes authenticated.I want to use this and where zimbra tries to compare its token to check for validation i call my API's method which will tell token is valid ,it will not be zimbra token comparison but the token that i get with my Application API.
    So i dont know when zimbra token is checked for validation ,it should go to my API calls and would return zimbra token valid.

    Ur help would be appreciated
    Thnaks
