Can't figure out how to create an API token

I can't seem to find where the "create a token" form is. I've read these:

While there isn't a "my profile" link to be found, I'm assuming that is now my username in the top right. I see the create a project and the list of projects below that, but there is no token section. I'm on a free account but it seems that shouldn't be the problem:

Am I completely missing something?

    You found a spot in our documentation that we haven't updated. It should be good now. Once you're in your profile area ('by clicking your username as you guessed), below your project list in the sidebar is a "Create API Token" heading. That's where you'll create your token.

    That's just it, the heading is not there:

    Yeah, I'm having the exact same issue here, there's no heading for the API tokens in the sidebar.

    I noticed that if you visit different areas of Lighthouse and access your profile, the API option is often present. It very well could be a caching issue and we hope to have this resolved shortly.

    You could try going to and accessing your user profile when logged in, or trying something like and going to your user profile if that doesn't work.
