Unable to make my token dynamic in my rule

Hello, I created a machine to machine application which help me enable Auth0 management API. from that API a token was generated. Currently in my login rule, the token is hardcoded (copied and paste from the API explorer) but I would like it to be dynamic so the token can be read directly from the API explorer without me copying from there everyday (my token has a 24hrs expiration).
Any idea on how to resolve it?

function (user, context, callback) {
  var ManagementClient = require('auth0').ManagementClient;
  var management = new ManagementClient({
    token: "eyJhb.......",
    domain: auth0.domain

here is how I currently refer to my token and do not want to have to update it daily

Hi @sandT,

You can exchange client credentials for a fresh token. Do this by adding the client ID and secret as options in your management client instead of specifying the token directly.

There is an example on the first page of auth0-node docs: ManagementClient - Documentation.

No problem.

One thing I forgot to mention, keep in mind the Management API rate limits when working with the API in a rule. You will quickly run into the limits if you are calling the managment API on every auth request.
