Do one of the following:

  • In Orchestrator, go to Tenant > Settings > Security , and then select Allow both user authentication and robot key authentication.
    :information-source: Note: Only an administrator can perform this task.
  • In the Studio Sign-in screen, select More Options > Connect to Orchestrator to connect using your machine key instead.
