minimum, in particular to not give it admin rights. But I note that
/api/nodes is protected and only accessible by admin (while other
generic calls such as /api/overview) are not. Is this a design
decision or a bug ?
Anyway, the management API is great and has made it very easy to write
these nagios checks.
