Get authentication details from your cloud provider
To start authenticating requests to a cloud origin, you first need to obtain the access key identifier and the secret associated with your cloud provider’s account.
Edge servers use these authentication details to compute a signature for requests to Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Storage. This lets the cloud provider identify the users making requests and grant them access to requested resources.
Before you begin
- For Amazon Web Services,
retrieve the access key ID and secret access key set for your account. You
can check for it in the .csv file that
you saved when creating your access key.Note: If you didn’t download the .csv file, or if you lost it, you may need to delete the existing access key and add a new one. See Resetting lost access keys in Amazon AWS.
- For applications migrated
to Google Cloud Store: working in interoperability mode, retrieve the access
ID and secret set for your service account. You can check for it in the file
you saved when creating your HMAC key. Note: If you didn’t download the file, or if you lost it, you may need to delete the existing HMAC key and add a new one. See Managing HMAC keys for service accounts.
