the operator token grants you access to your operator account and the operator dashboard 🔑
after the installation your operator token is logged in the console
if you accidentally closed the console you can check the logs with

the operator token can only be used once! Its used to create a new user-token with operator access.
Make sure to export your identity so you don't lose access
