Configure Azure service principals for Discovery

Configure Azure service principals on the instance to allow Discovery to find your Azure resources.

Before you begin

  • Role required: admin
  • A service principal on the Azure portal.
  • The Azure client ID and tenant ID, which you obtain from the Azure portal.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Microsoft Azure Discovery > Credentials (Service Principals).
  2. Click New.
  3. Fill in the form fields (see table).
    Field Value
    Name Enter the name of the service principal to register with the instance.
    Tenant ID and Client ID Paste the values that you obtained from the Azure portal.
    Authentication Method Select Client secret.
    Note: Client assertion is not supported.
    Secret key Paste the secret key that was generated while creating the Azure Service Principal.

    This field appears when Authentication method is Client secret.

  4. Right-click the form header and click Save.
  5. Grant Service Principal permission to the subscriptions that you want to manage as described in the Azure Resource Manager documentation.
  6. Click the Get Subscriptions related link.
    The instance discovers your organization's Azure subscriptions. This discovery process discovers only which subscriptions the Service Principal has access to. The process does not discover other resources.
