API tokens in Jira Cloud are user-specific rather than being attached to a specific project in Jira. This means that any API token you generate from your account will allow you/your scripts to perform the same actions that you have permission to in Jira, regardless of project. You could think of these as a replacement for a password.
Documentation is available at this link, and you can check to see the active API tokens you've created (and revoke them if necessary) at: https://id.atlassian.com/manage-profile/security/api-tokens
