Note: The Extended Access token provides access to your UI panels (user dashboard and, for admin accounts, JCA), excluding the Change Password, Account Settings, and Access Tokens tabs. Also, it allows removing environments via the dashboard without password confirmation (JCA operations still require password provision).
