API Key Generation and SSH Key Documentation

API Key Generation and SSH Key Documentation

Hello,

It is very simple to generate API keys for any user. Unfortunately, there is no mention of how to do this in the Admin Guide or the install Guide. It would be very easy to add the simple directions of how to do this in the documentation. It's as simple as pressing a button, but if you don't know that you might stumble around the documentation for hours trying to figure it out.

Also, under the directions for creating SSH keypairs, the documentation instructs you to run a curl command with port 8096. However, this does not work until you set integration.api.port in Global Settings to 8096 and reboot the management server. And, the documentation does not mention this.

For, reference I was issuing the curl command directly from the management server. The note in the documentation that says "If you are making the API call from a different server, your URL or port number will be different" is confusing, because it leads you to think that port 8096 should work by default, therefore causing you to look for something other than the port configuration as the root of the problem.

These are very simple fixes to the documentation, and they could save people wanting to try out Cloudplatform a fair amount of time trying to figure those things out. If there is a better place to put this kind of request, please let me know.

Peter, thanks for your feedback on our docs. I fully agree with all 3 points.
I am going to raise all of them to our docs writing team.

Radek.
