Enabling client access
Zenoss Cloud provides tools for creating and managing the authentication keys required to gain access to Zenoss Cloud with client applications.
Client applications include:
- Streaming data agents, customized applications, or integrations that use the data receiver service to send entities, metric data points, or events to Zenoss Cloud.
- Customized integrations that use the user management service to create or update user accounts and groups.
- Customized applications or integrations that update or query the policy service, metric dictionary or any other Zenoss Cloud service supported by the Zenoss API.
