Configure Microsoft Azure for cloud monitoring in the Orion Platform

Table of contents

Updated: December 27, 2017


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. Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions must also be set up. Consult your system administrator, as necessary.

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


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