To add an Azure cloud account for monitoring, you need to configure Azure to interact with the SolarWinds Platform.

Ensure that:

  • The account has sufficient Azure Active Directory (AD) and subscription permissions to add an AD app in the Azure Portal. With these permissions, the SolarWinds Platform can retrieve status and metrics for VMs.
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions are set up.

Visit the SolarWinds Success Center and review Configuring Microsoft Azure for cloud monitoring in the SolarWinds Platform for tips about setting up an Azure AD app and IAM permissions.

While using the Azure Portal, record credentials needed to add Azure accounts in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console. See Find cloud account credentials for details.
