|Set up for Node API|
The Aspera Node API comes with your installation of Point-to-Point. To use it, you must set up a Node username and password and configure your server.
Create a user account—for example, aspera_user_1—on your operating system by clicking. (Creating a user account requires administrator permissions.)
Configure the operating system user in Point-to-Point to make it an Aspera transfer user. For instructions, see Setting Up Users.
> asnodeadmin -a -u node_api_username -p node_api_passwd -x aspera_user_1
Adding, modifying, or deleting a node user triggers automatic reloading of the configuration and license files, as well as the user database.
