This article will show you how to create your credentials in order to work with our OpenStack API, either trough the Horizon dashboard, or the command line tools. Before getting started with OpenStack, you will need to generate your token which will allow you to authenticate yourself to the API. Here is how you can obtain your token:
- Log into the Internap portal at https://login.internap.com/
- Go to “My Infrastructure” and then “Cloud Management”
- From there, you will need to generate a new API user which will allow you to access the API and Horizon. Follow the steps on the right side of the screen.
- Once you have your API credentials, you will be ready to log in the Horizon dashboard at http://horizon.internap.com and the OpenStack command line tools to manage the API.
