Create Namespaces

There are two types of namespaces that are relevant for microsegmentation.
  • Cloud account namespaces
  • Group level namespaces
The following tasks show how to create these types of namespaces.

Create Cloud Account Namespaces

Use cloud account namespaces to identify:
  • AWS Cloud Accounts
  • Azure Subscriptions
  • GCP projects
  • Data centers
  1. To create a cloud-account-level namespace, go to the
    Namespace
    page under
    Network Security > Microseg
    .
    Ensure that you are on the root for your tenant-level namespace.
  2. Click on the
    + sign
    button to create a new cloud account level namespace.
  3. Enter the name for the namespace under
    Namespace Name
    .
  4. Select the
    Implicit Default Action
    . Set it to
    allow
    at first to enable child namespaces to inherit this action.
  5. Leave Organizational
    Tags and Additional Tag Prefixes
    unchanged unless a Prisma Cloud specialist explicitly instructs you otherwise.
    Cloud account namespaces are automatically created for cloud accounts onboarded on Prisma Cloud.

Create Group Level Namespaces

Use group namespaces to identify:
  • Virtual Machine (VM) or server-based applications
  • Kubernetes or Openshift clusters
  1. To create a group level namespace, go to the
    Namespace
    page under
    Network Security > Microseg
    .
    Ensure that you are on the proper cloud-account-level namespace
  2. Click on the
    + sign
    button to create a new group level namespace.
  3. Enter the name for the namespace under
    Namespace Name
    .
  4. Select the
    Implicit Default Action
    . Set it to
    allow
    to make sure the namespace default action is permissive. If you set it to
    inherit
    it receives the
    Implicit action
    from the parent namespace.
  5. Leave Organizational
    Tags and Additional Tag Prefixes
    unchanged unless a Prisma Cloud specialist explicitly instructs you otherwise.
