Generate an access key for another user or machine user

Only administrator can generate API access keys for other users, including machine users.

  1. Sign in to the CDP console as an Administrator.
  2. From the CDP home page, click Management Console.
  3. On the side navigation panel, click User Management.
  4. On the Users tab, click the name of the user or machine user account for which you want to generate an access key.
  5. On the user account page, go to the Access Keys section and click Generate Access Key.
  6. On the Generate Access Key pop-up window, click Generate Access Key.
    CDP creates the key and displays the information on the screen.
  7. Copy the access key and private key to a text file and send it to the CDP user who requires it.
    The private key is a very long string of characters. Make sure that you copy the full string. You can optionally download the credentials file containing the access key information by clicking Download Credentials File.
  8. Click Close to exit the access key window.
Once you have generated the access key, you can configure CDP CLI, SDK, or other utilities that require it.
