Accessing User Settings
After you register a cloud provider, you can access user settings by clicking User Settings from the user icon menu.
You can find the following information in the User Settings window:
- Account Name
- AWS External ID
- Default GEO
- API Access Key
API Secret Key
Note: If the API Access and the API Secret keys are not set, click the Generate icon (the gear icon) to generate these keys.
Warning: If you request a password reset, existing API Access and API Secret keys will be invalid and will need to be regenerated.
You will need the API keys and the AWS External ID in order to:
- Configure the Linux or Windows CLI utility
- Install the Docker Volume plugin
- Automate AWS account information retrieval
- Use and work with the REST API
