Create API credentials

You must create API credentials before you deploy the CloudFormation template.

To create API credentials, do as follows:

  1. Sign in to Sophos Central.
  2. Go to My Products > General Settings > API Credentials Management.
  3. Click Add Credential.
  4. Enter a Credential name.
  5. For Role, select Service Principal Firewall.
  6. Click Add. Sophos Central generates a Client ID and Client Secret.


    You'll need these credentials later when you specify your stack details in AWS.

  7. To copy the client secret, click Copy.


    You must copy the client secret immediately, as you won't be able to do this after you exit the page.
