Passing a value from one request to another request in ReactJs

I need help because I couldn’t use a separate function to generate the token – it gives out a promise, not a value. I was told that a value can only be used inside a function.

For each request, I generate a new token in the first request and then pass that token into the second request.

I tried making a separate function to generate the token, but fetch returns a promise.

As a result, I made such a big function and it works. Is there a way to make a separate function for the first request and pass the result to the second request?

The first token generation function is required frequently, while the second request is always different.

    fetch('/api/token', {
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        Accept: 'application/json',
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
      },
      body: JSON.stringify({ 'id': '5' }),
    })
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(result => {

    fetch('/api/reviews', {
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        Accept: 'application/json',
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + result.token,
      },
      body: JSON.stringify({ 'limit': 10 }),
    })
      .then(response => response.json())
      .then(result => {
          this.setState({ data: result.data });
      })

    })

create a function that return promise

async function getToken() {
   return await fetch('/api/token', {
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
            Accept: 'application/json',
            'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        },
        body: JSON.stringify({ 'id': '5' }),
    })
        .then(response => response.json())
        .then(result => {
            return Promise.resolve(result.token);
        }).catch(error => {
            return Promise.reject(error);
        })
}


async function getReview() {
    const token = await getToken().then(token => {
        return token
    }).catch(error => {
        //handle error
    });
    fetch('/api/reviews', {
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
            Accept: 'application/json',
            'Content-Type': 'application/json',
            'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + token,
        },
        body: JSON.stringify({ 'limit': 10 }),
    })
        .then(response => response.json())
        .then(result => {
            this.setState({ data: result.data });
        })

}
