Add Service Accounts On Prisma Cloud

Enable access to the Prisma Cloud APIs for non-human entities.
Service Accounts can be created for automation use cases to enable a nonhuman entity to interact programmatically with the Prisma Cloud APIs. Service accounts differ from user accounts in that they do not need an email address associated with them and do not need to be validated or activated in an external system before they can be used.
  1. Navigate to
    Access Control
    and select
    Service Account
    You must have the System Administrator role on Prisma Cloud to add a service account; a maximum of 250 service accounts are supported.
  2. Enter the Service Account details and click
    Think about the data you will enter carefully because the information that’s associated with the service account cannot be modified afterwards.

      —A descriptive name for your service account. You can enter a maximum of 300 characters in the
      Service Account Name
    • Role
      —The role for your service account.
