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 users shares, configure permissions as described below.
  1. Allow API login.
    For each Shares user, ensure that the API Login check box is checked under the Security tab. 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 API permissions and Shares permissions.
