Identity

What is Identity?

An Identity is a combination of an SSH username and SSH key pair. You can use it as credentials to authenticate an SSH connection to your Server. The Identity is referenced while creating a Rule.

Further proceeding, we assume that you are already in a particular Stack view and not in the Dashboard view.

Add Identity

  • Navigate to the Identities view by clicking the Identity icon on the left side menu bar in the Stack view.
  • To add a new Identity, click Add Identity link on the top right corner of the Identities view.
  • You will get into the Add Identity form.

We recommend allowing SloopEngine to automatically generate an SSH key pair while adding a new Identity. To accomplish this, enable the Generate key pair checkbox.

Update Identity

  • Navigate to the Identities view by clicking the Identity icon on the left side menu bar in the Stack view.
  • Click the pencil icon of the Identity which you want to update.
  • You will get into the Update Identity form.

Sync Identity

  • SSH to your Server (via host terminal) and deploy SloopEngine CLI in it.
  • Navigate to the Identities view by clicking the Identity icon on the left side menu bar in the Stack view.
  • Click the refresh icon of the Identity which you want to sync to the Server.
  • Copy the command in the popup and execute it in your Server.
sudo sloopengine identity sync --stack-id 1224 --id 3852
              

Change Keys

  • Navigate to the Identities view by clicking the Identity icon on the left side menu bar in the Stack view.
  • Click the key icon of the Identity which you want to change the keys.
  • You will get into the Change Keys form.

We recommend allowing SloopEngine to automatically generate an SSH key pair while adding a new Identity. To accomplish this, enable the Generate key pair checkbox.
