API Keys

This page lists the available Global API Keys for this Ops Manager instance. You can:

  • Search for an API Key,
  • Add new API Keys,
  • Edit existing API Keys, or
  • Delete existing API Keys.

Note

Ops Manager limits all actions in this section to users or Global API Keys that were granted the Global Owner role.

Add a Global API Key

  1. Click Create API Key to open the Add API Key page.

  2. At the Enter API Key Information step, set both required values in the Global API Key form:

    Description Type the purpose this Global API Key serves. This description can’t be longer than 250 characters.
    Global Permissions Select the new role or roles to be assigned to the API Key.

    Ops Manager generates the Public Key at this step.

  3. Click Next.

  4. At the Private Key step, click the Copy button to add the Private Key to the clipboard. Save and secure this Private Key as you would any other password. To use your Global API Key with the Ops Manager API, you need both the public key, which serves as a username, and the private key, which serves as a password.

    Warning

    Copy your full private key at this point. Store it in a secure location. Ops Manager doesn’t and can’t display the full private key after you leave this page.

  5. To add a whitelist entry, click Go to Global Whitelist.

  6. Click Done.

    Description Type the purpose this Global API Key serves. This description can’t be longer than 250 characters.
    Global Permissions Select the new role or roles to be assigned to the API Key.
  3. Click Save if you made changes to your Global API Key. Click Cancel to close the page without editing the Global API Key.
