Generating API Credentials with the Identity API

This use case scenario provides the Identity REST API command for generating new Veracode API credentials.

These commands revoke the current API credentials and return the API ID and API key for the new credentials. You must include the --json parameter to force the commands to send the Content-Type: application/json in the HTTP header.
