Service account authentication is necessary to use the Formant cloud SDK. You can create a service account using our webUI or fctl.
Create Service account from webUI
|From the burger menu select Settings ⇒ Users|
To add a new service user, Click on the Add Service User button.
Enter the service account name and assign a role [Admin, Operator, User]. An email address will be created automatically. Copy the credentials to a file safely. This will be the only time that these credentials are displayed.
Create Service account from fctl
Step 1 - Install and initialize fctl - the Formant administrative command line tool, using instructions from our help docs.
Step 2 - Create a service account by running the following command. The default output is in text. It can be modified to allow JSON using
fctl create service-account server001 --role administrator
To see more details, run the following:
fctl create service-account -h
After successfully running this command,
fctl will output the required credentials for your service account, including service account email and password.
