Configure Microsoft Azure for cloud monitoring in the Orion Platform

Table of contents

Updated January 21, 2018


Before adding an Azure cloud account to the Orion Web Console, Azure must be configured to interact with the Orion Platform.

An account requires sufficient Azure Active Directory (AD) and subscription permissions so you can add an AD app in the Azure Portal that allows the Orion Platform to retrieve status and metrics for VMs. Role-based access control (RBAC) must also be set up to manage access to resources in Azure. Consult Microsoft documentation and your system administrator, as necessary.

Refer to these articles to learn about integrating Azure with the Orion Platform.

While using the Azure Portal, record the credentials used to add Azure accounts in the Orion Web Console. See Find Microsoft Azure account credentials for details.
