Open Authorization (OAuth) is an authorization protocol that is a best-practice recommendation for RESTful APIs. It uses authorization tokens rather than passwords. OAuth provides limited scope access between HTTP-based applications or services.
OAuth credentials are required if you want to automatically send files from VirtualWisdom to Virtana Platform, such as when transferring metrics data for cloud migration.
OAuth credentials are generated for the Virtana Platform organization under which you logged in and are unique to that organization.
The client ID and client secret are valid for 12 hours. You can check their validity in the Settings for Virtana Platform. The OAuth access token is obtained every time a request is submitted using the client ID and client secret and is valid for two hours.
You can generate OAuth credentials for Virtana Platform so that you can securely connect with other applications or services.
