Access Rights

The Access Rights page displays the what permissions your account has. These are listed in three columns:

  • Section: The area of access within Altinity.Cloud, such as Accounts, Environments, and Console.
  • Action: What actions the access right rule allows within the section. Actions marked as * include all actions within the section.
  • Rule: Whether the Action in the Section is Allow (marked with a check mark), or Deny (marked with an X).

API Access Settings

Accounts can make calls to Altinity.Cloud through the API address at https://acm.altinity.cloud/api, and the Swagger API definition file is available at https://acm.altinity.cloud/api/reference.json.

Access is controlled through API access keys and API Allow Domains.

API Access Keys

Accounts can use this page to generate one or more API keys that can be used without exposing the accounts username and password. They allow API calls made to Altinity.Cloud to be made by the same Account as the keys were generated for.

When an Altinity.Cloud API key is generated, an expiration date is set for the key. By default, the expiration date is set 24 hours after the key is generated, with the date and time set to GMT. This date can be manually adjusted to allow the expiration date to make the API key invalid at the date of your choosing.

Create Altinity.Cloud API Key

To generate a new API key:

  1. Click your profile icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Select My Account.
  3. In the API Access tab, select + Add Key. The key will be available for use with the Altinity.Cloud API.

To change the expiration date of an API key:

  1. Click your profile icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Select My Account.
  3. In the API Access tab, update the date and time for the API key being modified. Note that the date and time are in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

To remove an API key:

  1. Click your profile icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Select My Account.
  3. In the API Access tab, select the trashcan icon next to the API key to delete. The key will no longer be allowed to connect to the Altinity.Cloud API for this account.

API Allow Domains

API submissions can be restricted by the source domain address. This provides enhanced security by keeping API communications only between authorized sources.

To update the list of domains this account can submit API commands from:

  1. Click your profile icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Select My Account.
  3. In the API Access tab, list each URL this account can submit API commands from. Each URl is a separate line.
  4. Click Save to update the account settings.
