How to perodic get myself WebEx Personal Token

Dear,

 

I would like to send some messages with 10-30mins intervals by myself Webex account, but the personal access token has a limited duration is 12 hours, so I must copy the personal access token manually every 12 hours, could you help to tell me how to get the personal access token, e.g. API or other ways? By the way, would you please loop me to a ebex developer discussion group?

Kindly visit https://developer.webex.com/docs/getting-started, once logged in, you will find your "Personal Access Token or the Bearer token" which can be used to interact with the Webex API as yourself. 
This token has a short lifetime - only 12 hours after logging into this site-so it shouldn't be used outside of app development. When using this token, any actions taken through the API will be done as you.

To perform actions on behalf of someone else or have a longer lifetime than the 12 hours Personal Access Token, you'll need a separate access token that you obtain through an OAuth authorization grant flow, check the Integration documentation https://developer.webex.com/docs/integrations for generating OAuth access tokens. 
A step by step guide on how to create one can be found here: https://developer.webex.com/blog/real-world-walkthrough-of-building-an-oauth-webex-integration .
