Generate UP9 Access Keys

UP9 and Authentication Overview

UP9 auto-discovers your authentication architecture by observing service traffic.

UP9 can locate scope, username, password, API tokens, authentication headers, and more, then embed these elements into the automatically generated test-code, so that the test-code will go through a complete authentication process.

UP9 observes service traffic and employs multiple techniques using its Authentication Helper to automatically discover authentication details necessary to run successful tests later.

UP9 uses access keys in order to authenticate CLI and test agents.
