System keys are used in cryptographic operations to generate and consume internal tokens. These tokens are leveraged in multiple use cases such as one-time links for self-service password reset and email ownership verification. Periodic rotation can ensure optimal security of your environment.

  1. Go to the Security > System Keys screen.
  2. To rotate the system keys, click Rotate and then Save.
