Subject RE: Generating api key for a user through API
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 07:05:24 GMT
Hi Prasanna,
Thanks to you and Chris for all your pointers.

I generated the API key through console and signed the request using openssl command, it was
quick and fast.
It worked for me and dint give me the certificate issue any more, so I moved on ahead.
My main motive now is whether I am able to hit the cloudstack APIs and to know how to hit
the APIs.

But, I will surely try python script to generate the signature in future.

Thanks and Regards.

Asmita Patil Vagyani.

Chris Sears responded with some python code on how to do this in your thread from y'day. Is
that not working for you?
