Subject Re: CloudStack API Question

Thanks for the info.

So, I see we have three roles in CloudStack:  Root Admin, Domain Admin, and
User.

When submitting API commands, does the submitter - regardless of role -
have to provide an API Key and Secret Key (or is that something, say, the
Root Admin doesn't have to do)?

Thanks!
