Setting the Windows Azure Pack API password

Cloud Cruiser uses the Usage REST API of Windows Azure Pack to retrieve subscription and usage data. The user account it connects with, UsageClient , has a randomly-generated password by default, so you must set a new password that you can provide to Cloud Cruiser.

To set the Usage REST API password
  1. On the Windows Azure Pack Admin Site machine, open a Windows PowerShell window.
  2. Execute the following command:
    Set-MgmtSvcSetting -Namespace UsageService -Name Password -Value '<newPassword>' -Encode

Note the new password you created so that you can provide it in the Cloud Cruiser installer or in a managed data source.

What to do next

Install the Cloud Cruiser application. See Installing the Cloud Cruiser application.
