The goal of this guide is to add a new SkyFormation for Palo Alto Aperture connector to your SkyFormation Platform.
To add the Aperture connector to your SkyFormation app, you will need to have the following Aperture account's information at hand:
- Unique Client ID + Client Secret
(used by the connector to authenticate and interact with the Aperture service later)
To get the Client ID the Aperture admin should follow the steps described at:
com/aperture/aperture-admin/ aperture-syslog-and-api- integration/add-your-api- client-app-to-the-aperture- service.html
or the below steps taken out of the above article:
a. Login to your Aperture account
b. Select Settings > External Service
c. Click Add Client App to register an API client.
d. Enter a unique Name for the API client.
e. Save your changes.
The Aperture service generates a Client ID and a Client Secret and displays the results.
Keep these two values for the later connector on-board process described below.
NOTE !!! The Aperture service displays the Client Secret in a pop up. After you dismiss the pop-up, you cannot see the Client Secret again.
To get more user management information refer to the guide:
