To work with a public cloud region, each enterprise should have its own public cloud account for the cloud provider. All the users in the tenant will work with this same account.
Before you begin:
Obtain credentials to access the cloud provider's API. We provide basic guides but you should always check with your provider. See Obtain public cloud credentials.
To add public cloud credentials:
|Provider||Select public cloud provider or vCloud Director region. Some providers may require different credentials for groups of regions, for example, "Amazon (CHINA)". If a specific provider does not display, for example, a vCloud Director region, the cloud administrator may need to allow access for your enterprise.|
|Access key ID|
Identity to access the cloud provider API. For example, a username, API access key ID, subscription ID and certificate, or another account identifier. For DigitalOcean v2, the platform does not use this field but you need to write something in to enable the button Add account after.
For Azure, the format is subscription-id#app-id#tenant-id
|Secret access key||Key to access the cloud provider API. For example, an API key or other API credential.|
For DigitalOcean v2 enter the token.
|Also use for pricing||Use this credential to access pricing data in the provider. For example, to get hardware profile prices from AWS. For Azure, add a separate pricing credential.|
|Current credentials||Provider that have credentials already in the platform|
|Create account||For resellers with Amazon, Azure ARM, and other partner accounts, click the enterprise create account button to create a customer account in the provider and add it to an enterprise in the platform|
Finish editing the enterprise and click Save
This will add a cloud provider account for a tenant enterprise with access to a public cloud region.
