Before adding an Azure cloud account to the Orion Web Console, Azure must be configured to interact with the Orion Platform. An account must have sufficient Azure Active Directory (AD) and subscription permissions to add an AD app in the Azure Portal so the Orion Platform can retrieve status and metrics for VMs. Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions must also be set up.

Visit the SolarWinds Success Center and review Configuring Microsoft Azure for cloud monitoring in the Orion 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 Orion Web Console. See Find cloud account credentials for details.
