This is a simple Ruby script to generate API tokens from the Brightbox Cloud API using your credentials.
Details about the Brightbox Cloud are available here: http://brightbox.com/
The Brightbox API uses OAuth2 (Draft 10) token based authentication for all of it's requests. So if you find yourself making requests from curl getting valid tokens becomes a pain.
The script uses your existing Fog credentials to access the Brightbox URL, client ID and secret and perform an API call to request a token.
Fog supports multiple sets of credentials, each can be setup separately.
:default: :brightbox_client_id: cli-named :brightbox_secret: zsp3mk48hwhklt :additional: :brightbox_auth_url: "https://api.gb2.brightbox.com" :brightbox_api_url: "https://api.gb2.brightbox.com" :brightbox_client_id: cli-kklds :brightbox_secret: 3hht333qjfDsa17
(These are fake values before you think I wasn't paying attention!)
Given it's goal, it is pretty minimal.
Run the script without arguments and it will use your default credentials.
$ get_token a03979ca5c296ae78996305d6e52117354bd4ee7
Run the script with the name of another set of credentials it uses them instead
$ get_token additional 67d5cb32c0ea874adf59b9600325dcd4764e7176 $ curl https://api.gb1.brightbox.com/1.0/account -H "Authorization: OAuth `get_token`" ... Lots of JSON ...
This is a pretty simple tool that might be useful to someone else. No real additional work on this script.
A replacement tool is planned.
- Delivered as a gem
- Will also check Brightbox CLI credentials for possible matches
