Authentication

[Update: July 6, 2018]

Overview

In SAKURA Cloud, judgment is made for whether or not the user is correct for each control panel or API user. Users are authenticated in order to assign the appropriate operating authority that has been set. This section discusses locations and methods for user authentication.

Control panel

SAKURA Cloud control panel is an interface for users to operate SAKURA Cloud on their browswer. SAKURA Cloud control panel can be accessed at https://secure.sakura.ad.jp/cloud/. It is possible to log in via the two types of accounts listed below.

  • The set of a member ID and member ID password is used for login authentication as users that possess all authority, including editing authority over users or accounts in SAKURA Cloud.
  • Login authentication as the user with limited authority by the set of the SAKURA Cloud user code, the member ID used to create the code, and the associated password.

Note

For information on the user account function, please refer to the :ref:``Here <user-account>` page.

Single Server Control panel

Single server can be logged in to from the dedicated control panel https://secure.sakura.ad.jp/cloud/single/. Users are authenticated using the set of the dedicated issued access token and access token secret.

For information on the single server control panel, please refer to the Here page.

SAKURA Cloud API

For API functions that can be used to operate SAKURA Cloud via REST, authentication is performed using the API key and secret token. For details, please refer to SAKURA Cloud developer center.
