We have a custom application that was developed in-house for automation, and we are trying to integrate Commvault into it, as we have for other backup applications used here.
We wanted to know if it was possible for Commvault to use an “API Key” (which Veritas NetBackup has) in order to authenticate, rather than having to use the normal authentication token which expires after 30 minutes of inactivity?
For more info on the API Key in Netbackup, see: getting-started (veritas.com)
A NetBackup API key is a pre-authenticated token that lets a NetBackup user run NetBackup commands
(such as nbcertcmd -createToken or nbcertcmd -revokeCertificate) or access NetBackup RESTful APIs.
Unlike a password, an API key can exist for a long time and you can configure its expiration.
Therefore, once an API key is configured, operations like automation can run for a long time using the API key.
