Application Credentials

Creating an Application Credential

  1. Log on to on your Nectar Dashboard and ensure you’re working in the right project (Use the project selector on the top left-hand side).
  2. Navigate to the Identity | Application Credentials page using the navigation links on the left side of the page.
  3. Click the Create Application Credential button to open the Create Application Credential dialog.

  4. Provide a credential name in the Name field.
  5. You can leave the Secret field blank, and a secure secret will be generated for you.
  6. Optionally, provide an expiration date in the Expiration Date field.
  7. Optionally, select the roles to grant to this application credential. Selecting nothing will grant all roles listed. If you have more than one role, it’s best to limit what you grant here to just what your script requires. Usually the Member role is enough.
  8. Click the Create Application Credential button.
  9. Click the Download openrc file button and the Download clouds.yaml button.
