As you work with cloud accounts in the Orion Platform, you may be prompted to provide account credentials (for example, when adding a cloud account or deploying an Orion agent to a cloud instance).

For an AWS account, provide the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.

To find AWS credentials:

  1. Log into the AWS Management Console,
  2. Click Account > Security Credentials.
  3. Scroll down to locate the credentials.
  4. Copy credentials into the Orion 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
