SD02206045 - 35000 Login/logout logs caused by RHEVM discovery

Status : Duplicate
over 3 years ago

Using REHVM discovery, customer noticed that when they run the job, there are several thousands of login/logout requests done. This is caused by the fact that each REST request sent is causing user/password authentication (thus login/logout), and never tries to authenticate to generate a token that could be reused all the way though the discovery process.

We worked together  with customer to modified scripts with customers in order to have this token auth in place, and this works like a charm. Now, a full discovery is generating only one login/logout.

Could you implement such a change (that is,  token authentication) in the next release of the REHVM package, so that this feature comes out of the box?

Thanks in advance
