How to generate Access Token when developing for a specific store

I have a client that hired me to develop a specific feature for his store. This isn't a custom/public app, just code written specifically for this client's needs.

As part of the new feature, I need to call the Admin GraphQL API, for example, the DiscountAutomaticBxgy, from the client's server.

I saw documentation on how to obtain an Access Token when developing a custom/public app, however, I figure there should be a way to access the Admin API, on my client's behalf, without the need to develop all the OAuth flow.

Thanks for your support,

You want the "Private App" option where you would use the provided api key and secret in the dashboard.
