Automatic M2M SSH Connections

Noninteractive connections can be used with service accounts as part of automated processes.

To enable noninteractive connections via SSH Bastion:

  1. Set up public-key authentication for the relevant PrivX users, as described in Public-Key Authentication (SSH Bastion).

  2. Set up access from users' roles to target accounts using any noninteractive authentication method (certificate, public key, or stored passphrase). For more information about authentication methods, see the section Authenticating to Hosts.

After you have set up access with the required authentication methods, users can connect to targets noninteractively by using the direct Bastion syntax, as described in SSH Connections with Native Clients.
