Credentials for discovering cloud resources

Discovery and Service Mapping customers need to configure credentials before they can discover AWS and Azure resources.

AWS credential requirements

The credentials required for the instance to access AWS accounts are the AWS account number, the access key ID, and the secret access key. Provide these credentials so that the instance can discover AWS accounts. If you are using IAM to manage users in AWS, you must create a user profile in IAM that is specifically designed for use by the instance.

Azure credential requirements

The credentials required for the instance to access Azure accounts are referred to as service principals. A service principal is the automated process, application, or service that the Azure admin configured to access the subscription that the admin specifies. Provide the credentials for your Azure service principal to the instance so that the it can discover the Azure subscriptions for your organization.
