How to generate credentials

To install Edge Orchestrator Agent and start orchestrating, you must create your credentials before. You can do so through:

  1. Access Azion Console > Account menu.
  2. Click the Add Credential button.
  3. Give your credential an easy-to-remember name.
  4. Describe how or by whom the credential will be used in the Description field in Settings.
  • Example: Credential used for Edge Nodes registration.
  1. Click the Save button.

A token will be generated after the credential is saved.

When clicking on the created credential on the Credentials page, you can:

  • Copy the generated token.
  • Delete your credential.
  • Edit your credential. You can update your credential’s name, description, and status (active/inactive).

  1. Run the following POST request in your terminal:
Terminal window
curl --location '' \
--header 'Accept: application/json; version=3' \
--header 'Authorization: Token [TOKEN VALUE]' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"description": "credential to use with Orchestrator",
"name": "new credential",
"status": true

Replace [TOKEN VALUE] with your personal token and inform the following properties in the request body:

nameName of the credential you want to createYes
descriptionOpen field to describe your credential with information such as for what purpose it was createdNo
statusStatus of your credentialNo

Now you can install Edge Orchestrator agent on your node and start orchestrating your services.
