Subject RE: Forbid direct API connection
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 11:10:59 GMT
Hi Geoff,

I have two management server and I want to allow API connection only on the
second management server.
I need the secret key and the API key for each account. E.g. I want to
provision a new VM for the end-user through the API (from the second
management server)

Hi Fabrice,

If users do not have a Secret Key and API key then they cannot use the API.
You could use a SQL Query to go through and remove all Keys.  Admins could
still use the unauthenticated API Port, obviously on a random port for
enhanced security.

Hi Folks,

Is there a way to disable the API connection on a  management server ?

I don’t want to allow api request from internet.
