The Upload Account must be secure

Access to the API, and its usage are tied to a specific upload account that allows access to the target storage group. This account must be set up securely using an SSH Key.

You can accomplish this in a number of ways:

  • Use an existing Upload Account that already has an SSH Key applied.
  • Add a new SSH Key to an existing Upload Account.
  • Add an entirely new Upload Account and apply an SSH Key to it.

Editing an existing account, as well as creating a new one is discussed in the documentation for the NetStorage Groups tool in Control Center.
