3. Set WAP API password

This article is needed if you will collect data from Microsoft Windows Azure Pack. 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
  3. Note the new password you created so that you can provide it in a data source.
