Configuring a Script Account

You can create an account from Designer or Manager. In Designer, when working on Pipelines, every Snap that needs an account prompts you to create a new account or use an existing account. The accounts can be created in or used from:

  • Your private project folder: This folder contains the Pipelines that will use the account.
  • Your Project Space’s shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users that belong to the Project Space.
  • The global shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users within an organization in the SnapLogic instance.

Account Configuration

In Manager, you can navigate to the required folder and create an account in it (see Accounts). To create an account for binary files:

  1. Navigate to the project in SnapLogic Manager, click Create, then select Script, then Kerberos Account.
  2. Supply an account label.
  3. Supply the necessary information.

  4. Click Validate to validate the configuration, amend if required.
  5. Click Apply to save the account configuration.
  6. (Optional) Supply additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab.


Avoid changing account credentials while Pipelines using them are in progress. This may lead to unexpected results, including locking the account.

Account Type

Kerberos

Account Settings

Label

Required. User provided label for the account instance

Principal

Required. The principal to be used to authenticate to the Kerberos KDC (Kerberos Key Distribution Center - Network service used by the clients and servers for authentication).

Example: snaplogic/john.doe@dummy.com 

Default value: No default value.

A Kerberos principal is a unique identity to which Kerberos can assign tickets. It must include three parts– the primary, the instance, and the realm. A typical principal has the syntax: primary/instance@realm.

Keytab File

Required. The full path to the keytab file used to authenticate to the Kerberos KDC. See Keytab for more details.

Example: /keytabs/snaplogic.keytab 

Default value: No default value.

Keytab, short for key table, is a file used for storing long-term keys for one or more principals. See Keytab for more details.
