How to create an Azure credential to integrate with Cloud8

The step-by-step guide for creating a credential to integrate your Azure cloud with Cloud8 can be found at the link below:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-group-create-service-principal-portal

In short, to make it easier and more direct, here are the steps after logging into the Azure Portal:

  1. Search for “Subscription” or “Signature” –

https://portal.azure.com/#view/Microsoft_Azure_Billing/SubscriptionsBlade

Choose subscription and save the subscription code.

2. Create an application – https://portal.azure.com/#view/Microsoft_AAD_IAM/ActiveDirectoryMenuBlade/~/Overview

Click on “New registration” and choose a name.

After creating the application, set a password. Choose a name for the key and enter an expiration date of 24 months. Once created, we now need a ‘secret’ (password). Important : we need the ‘Value’ and not the ID!

Get the Application ID and Tenant ID (tenant) values

  1. Associate permission

Return to search for subscription

Important: when searching, enter the entire name of the application you created. Azure can’t find it for letters that are in the middle.

Ready! Now you have created your Service Principal and are ready to associate it with Cloud8.

Parameters we need:

  • Subscription ID
  • Tenant ID
  • Application ID
  • Password (value)
