Retrieving Key Pair

If you chose not to save your private keys to Datapipe, you can retrieve them as needed from the "Key Pairs" menu.  You would, for example, need to do this if you wish to retrieve your instance's password which is secured by the private key associated with that instance.

To retrieve, click on the "Upload Private Key" link.

If you do not store your private key on the portal, make certain that you download it and put it in a secure location. Without your private key, your VM's password cannot be retrieved. If you were to require assistance with your VM and the private key has not been stored in the portal, you will need to supply the password to the support person.
