To be able to integrate some services of Cloudglass with the cloud providers you need to create the appropriate credentials on the provider side and then add it to Cloudglass
The following features need credentials to work:
- Service Discovery Enables to see the resources deployed on your accounts
- Start/Stop VM Start/Stop virtual machines
- AWS Support Create and edit your AWS support tickets
You can find the instructions on how to create the credentials for the different providers on the credentials section.
One of the design principles of Cloudglass is that all operations made inside Cloudglass over you infrastructure must have your explicit approval. Security matters.
That's why users are in control of the creation and manipulation of the credentials.
Note: All credentials are stored encrypted in our databases
