Manage access to your Cloud Flexibility instance

#Give access to the Flexibility cloud server

This document explains the steps to connect to your cloud Flexibility server.

To connect, you need to have your ssh key allowed. The connection also has an IP-range restriction. Thus you need to allow both SSH key and IP addresses to access your Cloud environments.

The Project manager on the customer side and the system integrator are the only ones allowed to add or remove SSH accesses or whitelist IP addresses on a given cloud instance for the contacts from their company.

#Add your ssh key to access your Flexibility instance

Every user that needs to get the bootstrap archive has to share their SSH public key with Akeneo first. See how to provide access and manage users and keys here.

Once the contacts are created and their keys imported, the project manager can add them to the project.

  1. First from the menu, go to Project console / Projects and select your project
  2. Go to the Cloud instance tab, and open the instance by clicking on the instance line
  3. Open the Server SSH Key Access sub-tab
  4. Click on Add contact key
  5. Select a contact. The list contains the active contacts from your company with the profile Console User
  6. Select an existing public key on the list

  • Or import a new public key for this contact, by clicking on Import a new Public Key
