Set up Cloud Management cloud accounts for AWS

A Cloud Management cloud account is a logical representation in Cloud Management of your managed cloud infrastructure. You can associate a Cloud Management cloud account with one or more logical datacenters (LDCs) at one or more provider accounts — even including LDCs from disparate provider.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_cmp.cloud_admin

About this task

See Cloud Management cloud accounts for detailed information.
Note: Cloud providers often use proprietary names for account and credential settings. Because the Cloud Management application supports several cloud providers, Cloud Management uses general-purpose names for the settings (this documentation calls your attention to such names). In AWS, the region-specific containers for virtual resources are called regions. In Cloud Management, regions are called logical datacenters (LDCs or datacenters). All infrastructure or applications that are deployed using Cloud Management are associated with an LDC..


  1. Navigate to Cloud Management > Cloud Admin Portal > Cloud Accounts.
  2. Click New, enter a unique and meaningful Name and Description, and then select the cloud Provider for the account (AWS).

  5. Select one or more LDCs to associate with the Cloud Management cloud account, click Save, and then close the popup.
    The Cloud Account dashboard appears. The datacenters that you selected appear on the Datacenters tab.
