Service accounts#

A service account is a set of credentials that allows you to manage your organization programmatically by enabling you to authenticate to the Anaconda Cloud API. For more information, see Managing your organization using the Anaconda Cloud API.

Only administrator users can create service accounts. You can create as many service accounts per organization as you need. However, Anaconda recommends limiting the number of service accounts to no more than is absolutely necessary. Restricting the number of service accounts enhances your organizations security posture.
