Subject Re: VM Console Access - API
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2013 07:52:34 GMT
Hi, Gaspare
To generate the signature, you need SecretKey as well as request parameter.
CloudStack itself has the tools to generate signature for each request.
The util location: test/src/com/cloud/test/utils/SignRequest.java

As an example, your apikey is APIKEY, secretkey is SECRETKEY and
request url is URL, to generate the whole url with signature, the
command line parameter should be:
-a "APIKEY" -u "URL" -s "SECRETKEY"
