Creating/resetting an access key
Be very careful when selecting this action as it will immediately reset an access key/secret access key pair meaning any persons or systems using the service will not be able to load data until they have updated their credentials.
A secret access key must be recorded when it is generated using the steps below. For security reasons, once the screen below is closed the secret access key cannot be retrieved again. If the secret access key is lost, the relevant access key cannot be used and a new key pair must be created.
On the Manage Connections page, select the connection where the access key will be created/reset
Right-click and choose Create/Reset Access Key from action menu. This will immediately reset the access key and secret access key and open the Create/Reset Access Key screen.
On the Create/Reset Access Key screen, a newly generated access key and secret access key will be visible
The secret access key must be recorded at this step. If you close the form without recording the secret access key you will not be able to retrieve it later and will need to start the process again to generate a new key pair.
Once the secret access key has been recorded, close the form.
The newly generated access key will be visible on the Manage Connections page
Removing an access key
On the Connection Details page, select a connection where access key will be removed
Right-click and choose Remove Access Key from the action menu.
A confirmation message will appear, confirming if the user wants to continue disabling the access key.
The access key and secret keys will be cleared on the Manage Connection page.
