Since ESRI doesn't have a 10.2 forum yet, I'm posting this to the 10.1 forum.

I just upgraded to ArcGIS Server 10.2.  I noticed that the "Get Token" link is no longer availabe in the Rest Services Directory.  I can generate a token from the Admin Directory.  Is this how we are supposed to do it now?  I haven't found any documentation on creating tokens in 10.2. 

From the Web Adaptor, I can still get to https://servername/arcgis/tokens/ even though it is not linked anywhere.  If we had the admin access enabled (which we will not for production), the Admin directory token page is https://servername/arcgis/admin/generateToken.  Note I'm using https because I have secure services enabled.

Is it me or is token generatation more hidden in 10.2 than 10.1?  What's up with that?  Why remove it from the REST Services Directory?
