Find cloud account credentials
This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:
Hybrid Cloud Observability Essentials — Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced
IPAM — NAM — NPM — SAM — VMAN
As you work with cloud accounts in the SolarWinds Platform, you may be prompted to provide account credentials (for example, when deploying an Orion agent to a cloud instance).
For an AWS account, provide the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
- Log into the AWS Management Console,
- Click Account > Security Credentials.
- Scroll down to locate the credentials.
- Copy credentials into the SolarWinds Platform Web Console.
For an Azure account, provide the following credentials, available in the Azure Portal:
- Subscription ID
- Tenant/Directory ID
- Client/Application ID
- Application Secret Key
For tips on finding Azure credentials in the Azure Portal, see the article Configure Microsoft Azure for cloud monitoring in the SolarWinds Platform.
Azure uses different terms for the same credential:
|SolarWinds Platform Web Console reference||Microsoft Azure reference||Notes|
|Subscription ID||Subscription ID||
|Application Secret Key||
Application Secret Key
Client Secret Key
When you generate a secret Key in the Azure Portal, record it immediately. Otherwise, you will need to a generate a new key later.
