Can I use an SSH key to log into SWM using the Java API?


Daniel FitzGerald (11) | asked Nov 08 '22, 4:35 p.m.

I am working on an application that uses the EWM Java API.  The examples that I have on using the API all log in using an encrypted password stored in file.  Is there a way to authenticate using an SSH key instead?

What's the difference between using an encrypted password and an SSH Key? Both would be stored somewhere such as a file, or somewhere else like a database. You should certainly use a distinct user ID (i.e. not your user id, therefore not your password) which you can give/remove specific permissions.

I have always used a user ID for automation. 


Using an API or SSH Key: Not that I would be aware of. Usually the authentication is delegated to an authentication provider or LDAP system. I would expect you would need to configure this to provide access, but I do not know how you need to configure these systems.
