    Authentication

    To use Cloudomation you need an account. Get in touch at info@cloudomation.com to request a trial account. When you sign up you create a workspace with one user. You can later add more users to your workspace. All users of your workspace will share the same resources in Cloudomation.

    Below are the descriptions on how to authenticate with Cloudomation using different methods.

    Cloudomation users are locked out when there are too many failed login attempts. When a user is locked out Cloudomation sends an email to the user with instructions to recover the account.

    Via the User Interface

    To authenticate via the user interface you need to visit your workspace's login page. Your login page is accessible under https://<your-workspace-name>.cloudomation.com. You need to enter your user name and your password. If you enabled Two-Factor-Authentication (2FA) for your user you also have to enter the current 2FA code.

    Once all the required fields are filled in, you can click on "Login". If the authentication is successful your browser receives a cookie. The cookie contains a JWT token which is used to authenticate by subsequent requests. The cookie is valid for 30 days.

    Via the REST API

    To authenticate using the REST API you need to POST a JSON string containing your credentials to https://<your-workspace-name>.cloudomation.com/api/latest/auth/login. An example JSON might look like:

    {
    "user_name": "kevin",
    "password": "secret"
    }

    If successful, the API will respond with HTTP 302 and a Set-Cookie header. If unsuccessful, the API returns with HTTP 401: Unauthorized
