The Credentials section of the AWS Setup tab contains credentials that Cloud Discovery & Visibility uses to access your AWS infrastructure. Fields in the Advanced tab of the Credentials section let you configure multiple AWS credentials for different regions or the same region. These settings are as follows:

To apply multiple AWS credentials for (optionally) different regions:

In order to apply different AWS credentials for different regions, you must first prepare a text file with credential information for each region. Each line in the file should define a single set of credentials, in one of the following formats:

<Region>, <AWS_access_key>, <AWS_secret_key>
<Region>, <AWS_access_key>, <AWS_secret_key>, <Role_ARN_assumption>

Where:

  • Region: The region to which this line's credentials apply, such as us-west-2.

  • AWS_access_key: The AWS access key ID for your environment.

  • AWS_secret_key: The AWS secret access key that is associated with the specified AWS access key.

  • Role_ARN_assumption: The AWS role assumption ARN.

If Cloud Discovery & Visibility is deployed on an EC2 instance and you would like to apply different AWS credentials for different regions, the format of the text file must be one of the following formats:
<Region>, , , <Role_ARN_assumption>
<Region>
Note: If you define the AWS_access_key and AWS_secret_key parameters within the text file, the values are ignored when CDV is deployed on an EC2 instance.

When you finish editing the multi-credentials text file:

  1. In Cloud Discovery & Visibility, click AWS in the banner at the top and then click Setup.

  2. Click to expand AWS Credentials (if necessary), then click the Advanced tab.

  3. Drag the multi-credentials text file into the Multiple Credentials File area.

    You can also click the Multiple Credentials File area to manually navigate to the desired file.
