  • A new tab will open, prompting you to log in with your OVHcloud credentials

  • Once logged in, you'll be asked to fill in a form with a name, description, validity time, rights, and restricted IPs

    • We suggest using "Vanta" for the Application name field, adding a descriptive detail, and setting the Validity time to unlimited

    • In the Rights section, ensure that you include an entry with the GET method set to ' /me/identity/user ' and another entry with the GET method set to ' /me/identity/user/* '

  • Click on Create. Your three keys will be generated. We recommend storing these keys in a secure location for future reference

  • Copy and paste these keys into Vanta and click on Validate and Store.\

 

Managing API keys from OVHcloud console

If you've previously created an application named "Vanta" and need to regenerate your keys, you may encounter an 'Application already exists' error. This happens because the application name must be unique within your OVHcloud account.

To resolve this:

 

  1. Delete your previous application using the OVHcloud console. Access the console via one of these links, depending on your region, and log in using the top-right corner button:

  1. Use the `/me/api/application` GET endpoint to retrieve all of your application IDs

 

  1. Verify the correct applicationId using the `/me/api/application/{applicationId}` GET endpoint

  1. Once you've confirmed the applicationId, delete the application using the  `/me/api/application/{applicationId}` DELETE endpoint:

  2. Now that you have deleted the previous application, you can proceed to regenerate your keys. Follow the steps outlined earlier in this article to connect the OVHcloud integration successfully.
