Field

Description

Project Details

Presents details about your project, such as name, organization, timezone, project creator, project creation date, and the access URL. 

Usage Statistics

Indicates the amount of events and people profiles triggered in this project.

Access Keys

Contains the values for the token and API secret for the project.


Project Token

Your project token is used whenever you want to send data (events or people) to Mixpanel.

Your token is public, and is the only project-specific object required to send data to Mixpanel.

Since Mixpanel users can have multiple projects, and each project has its own project token, whenever you want to send data to a specific project, you'll need to specify the project token so we know where to send the data.

API Secret

This is a secret API key corresponding to your project. You should never share this API secret or send it over email.

You will use your secret to sign an API call, and it is required to extract data from your Mixpanel project.

Resetting Projects

You can reset the current project in Project Settings. When you reset the project, Mixpanel deactivates the project and all its data and projects settings, then generates a new project.

To reset the current project:

  1. Click Reset.
