Using a token instead of an account to connect Cesium with Unreal

Hey all, I’m wondering if there’s a way to connect to Cesium for Unreal with a token instead of an account. I’m in a situation where the company doesn’t want everyone who’s going to work on the project to have the login information for cesium ion, and there doesn’t appear to be a way to add the token to a “personal” cesium ion account.


Hi Brady

Yes, you can do that manually.

In Cesium for Unreal, you can start by adding a Blank 3D Tileset. Enter the Cesium ion Asset id in the ion Asset ID field in the details panel, and similarly the ion Access Token.

To create Access Tokens, visit Cesium ion Access Tokens page at Cesium ion, and you can create new tokens. Access Tokens are reusable for multiple assets based on the permissions and allowed assets so that you don’t have to create a new token per asset per user. You are free to create any number of access tokens as you wish and matrix them in a way that works for you. You can read more about scopes at Cesium ion API |


Thanks, that worked!
