As a Media portal administrator, you can create and manage CDN API security keys for your organization. You create a key for a specific access group and role. From there, Media portal generates a key ID and a secret text string which you use to make API requests.
To help ensure security, Media portal deactivates keys after 120 days of inactivity and disables keys after 180 days of inactivity. Media portal sends a warning message to the users associated with a key 30 days before deactivating or disabling the key.
