Cause

Customer must use the parent accounts credentials.

If they do not want to share API credentials with their subaccount, then  they can generate a permanent token and use the token instead.

 

Environment

Release : 10.6

Component : CA APP SYNTHETIC MONITOR (WATCHMOUSE)

Resolution

Can either use a very simple mechanic of an API token

https://api.asm.saas.broadcom.com/v3/#/api-token/api-token-create

This can be generated once with infinite or a very long duration and shared with subaccounts

 

Or the more complex but secure mechanic of OAuth2, with a short-lived access token and a longer lived refresh token
