Authenticating to the Nexfs Management API

A temporary session security token must be requested to access the Nexfs Management API.

Session Duration

Temporary security session tokens expire after a default 5 minutes of inactivity or when a login request is received to revoke the token.


The user ID the token is requested for must have the managmentconsolelogin role enabled.

Request Parameters

A request must be made against the nexfs management console api with the GetSessionToken Action.

The request must be signed with a valid AWS V4 style Signature.


If successful, Nexfs will respond with a temporary security token, including an access key ID and a secret access key. These must be used when signing Nexfs Management API requests for the session duration.


See Rest Error Responses

If the request cannot be authenticated, a 401 Unauthorized response will be received.
