Shares API Permissions

Aspera products such as IBM Aspera Drive and IBM Aspera Enterprise Server have integrated capabilities for working with IBM Aspera Shares. Such products interact with Shares using the API. To allow the API to correctly access the users shares please below ensure that the permissions are correctly configured.
  1. For each Shares user, ensure that the API Login check box is checked under the Security tab. On Shares 1.6 and later versions, this permission is enabled by default whenever new users are created.
  2. Create shares, and authorize users for each share. The table below describes the mapping between the API permissions and Shares user permissions.
