Managing users and authentications#

Use User authorization and User authentication to manage users and authentication.

Users can be created, modified, or removed in HCL™ Accelerate.

Users can be authenticated from the systems detailed in the following table:

Authentication method UI API
Local Supported Not supported
LDAP Supported Not supported
SSO Supported Not supported
User access key (UAK) Not supported Supported

API authentication

UAK is the recommended method through the API. An example for UAK is:

curl -X POST -k -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Authorization: UserAccessKey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'.

Details for configuring UAKs are found here.
