Do access tokens obtained with getTokenSilently count against M2M limit?

For a Vue SPA with API backend, we are looking at Auth0 instead of homegrown JWT auth via the API.

When we obtain an access token via getTokenSilently, does this count as an M2M token? The documentation is vague on this point.

My initial guess was “no,” as in the Auth0 management console the M2M limit warning was shown for the Application type M2M, but not API.

This will help us decide whether we need to start with a Developer or a Developer Pro account type.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @james.blachly,

Welcome to the Auth0 Community! Only tokens generated using the Client Credentials grant type count against your M2M quota.
