Getting a NetApp Kubernetes Service API token

Enabling cloud services for NetApp HCI requires a NetApp Kubernetes Service API token that is associated with your NetApp Cloud Central account. You can complete these steps before enabling cloud services or during the process, when a wizard displays a link to get the API token.


  1. Open a web browser and browse to NetApp Cloud Central for NetApp Kubernetes Service.
  2. Log in to NetApp Kubernetes Service by providing the NetApp HCI storage cluster administrator credentials.

    If you do not have an account, click Sign Up and provide the required information.

  3. Click the user icon at the top right of the screen.
  4. In the resulting menu, click Edit Profile.
  5. In the API Tokens section, click Add Token, enter a token name, and click Create.
    A new token is created; the cURL command changes to include the new token string.
  6. Run the displayed cURL command in a Unix or Mac command terminal.
    A response of [] indicates that the token registration was a success.
  7. Copy the token and save it in a file so that you can later paste it when needed.
