Required custom HTTP headers

The following custom headers are required by all operations.

X-Api-KeyAPI key to access the storage system. This is the recommended authentication method that provides better security. To create and manage an API key, check details at API authentication.




User name and password to access the storage system. This method is considered optional. It works when the X-Api-Key header is not present. Users are encouraged to switch to the new API key method. The user password method is provided for backward compatibility purposes. When both API key and user/password headers are included, the user/password is ignored. Only one of these two methods is required.
