Do I need to send accessToken to internal API when calling it from a server component?

I have some internal APIs consumed from the clientSide but also form the serverSide. When working from the server side with fetch do I need to send the accessToken?
Thanks 🙂

Depends, we could do with some more context.

Is the access token specific to the user somehow or is it for the whole app?

If it's for the whole app, you can still access an env variable on the server side in the same way: process.env.NEXT_PUBLIC_<YOUR_VAR>

Yes, specific to the user. Thanks 🙂
