Learn about the options for adding your cloud accounts
to Prisma™ Cloud.
To get the most out of your investment in Prisma™ Cloud,
you first need to add your cloud accounts to Prisma Cloud. This
process requires that you have the correct permissions to authenticate
and authorize the connection and retrieval of data.
Prisma Cloud administrators with the System Administrator and
Cloud Provisioning Administrator roles can use the cloud account
onboarding guided tour for a good first-run experience with all
supported cloud platforms—Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud,
and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The workflow provides the context
you need to make decisions based on your own security and compliance requirements
and it uses automation scripts—Cloud Formation templates for AWS
or Terraform templates for Azure and GCP—to create the custom roles
and enable the permissions required to add a cloud account.
When you log in to Prisma Cloud for the first-time, the guided
tour displays after the welcome tour and prompts you to pick a cloud
platform to add to Prisma Cloud.
You will make a few choices and provide basic account details
to retrieve configuration logs and get started with Prisma Cloud
for monitoring and visibility. If you want to ingest data from event
logs and flow logs, you need to perform additional tasks.
