Subject Re: Launching VMs COnsole using the CS4 APIs
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 14:59:49 GMT
There is a single sign on key that is used in conduction with a api key
and a secret key to transfer the control transparently to the vm console.
This is how custom portals can provides seamless access to the vm console.
There are several steps required to configure it. Some insight is provided
here 
http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/cloudportalbusiness-14/ccpb-troubl
eshoot.html.

 This info is specific to cloud portal and we should be documenting it for
general use. Check this out if it makes sense. I will see if we can
document it in a generic way so that the cloudstack users can make use of
it with ease.
