The storyboard api docs [2] point to this location under your userprofile [3], though it seems to not be directly linked to in the storyboard UI. And there are docs for managing subsequent user tokens further down in the api docs [4].

I've not used any of this so unsure how accurate it is, but hope this is enough to get you going with storyboardclient.
