Subject registerUserKeys API
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2012 23:55:54 GMT
Several questions regarding the "registerUserKeys" API:

1. Only the ROOT admin have access to it. In a public cloud, it does not
make sense for the ROOT admin to create keys for every user in every
domain. The responsibility should go to domain admins. Is there a plan to
give domain admin access to the API?
2. The API simply takes user id as parameter. It does not take into account
whether the user already has a key or not. User's key will be overwritten
if he/she already has one. Should we change the API a little bit to take
this into account?
3. You can actually generate key for the internal "system" user (with
id=0). It might cause some issues if "system" is meant to be an internal
user only. Is there a valid use case for system user to use its API key? If
not, it should be blocked.
