Getting a Token

How to get a token for your bot

Getting a token

To get your bot online you first must create a discord developer profile and create an application.

Create an Application

Head over to https://discordapp.com/developers/applications/ and create an account if you do not already have one. Click the New Application button to create a new application. Give the application any name you wish (this is not your bots name).

Generate a Bot

On this new page click the Bot tab on the left hand side menu.

Click the Bot tab

Once you are on this new page click the Add Bot button to create a bot. Click Yes, do it! to confirm.

Adding a Profile Picture and Name

From the Bot tab you can set your bots profile picture and display name. The Username field is the display name of the bot and is what people will see in discord. From this page you can also change your bots icon to anything you wish.

If you wish to set your bot to private you can do this by unchecking the Public Bot option. This will mean that only you will be able to invite your bot to any server.

Ensure that Requires OAUTH2 Code Grant is unchecked. Failing to do so will mean that your bot will be unable to be inviting to servers.

Getting your Token

To get your token click the Copy button under Token. You will paste this into your BotGhost Dashboard under settings.
