How to Configure API Authorization for the HubStor Connector Service

The account used to connect the HCS with your HubStor cloud archive tenant must have API authorization.

Step 1 -- Navigate to Users/Groups

HubStor lists all identities in the 'Administration' tab. Click 'Administration', then 'Users & Roles', and finally 'Users/Groups' to see a complete listing of identities in your HubStor tenant.

Step 2 -- Find the Account Used for the HCS

In the 'Users/Groups' tab, find the user account that the HCS will use. You can use the filtering feature in any of the column headers, as follows:


Step 3 -- Edit the User Permissions

Beside the account, click the edit icon.


This will open the 'Manage Principal' window. Click to the 'Permissions' tab. 

Click to enable the blue checkbox beside the 'API' permission, and click 'OK'.



Now, when you configure the HCS with credentials for this account, the HCS will be authorized to make API calls to your HubStor tenant.
