This article provides an overview on linking your AWS account to Druva CloudRanger via an AWS access role. Druva CloudRanger offers an out-of-the-box Quick Setup approach to configure access to your AWS account. The CloudFormation stack allows you to provision the access role for your AWS environment.
This instructional video explains how you can easily set up your IAM access role to grant access permissions to CloudRanger.
Before you begin
Make sure that you are logged into the AWS account for which you wish to configure the Access Role.
Create AWS access role
The following steps describe how to create an IAM access role to grant CloudRanger access to your AWS account.
- Log in with your CloudRanger credentials into https://console.cloudranger.com/.
- Click Get Set Up.
- Click Quick Setup to generate the CloudFormation stack.
Note: Alternatively, you may copy the CloudFormation script onto AWS to manually create the stack and provision the access role for your AWS environment.
- Select the I acknowledge that AWS CloudFormation might create IAM resources with custom names check box, and then click Create Stack to generate the CloudFormation stack.
- Refresh the stack until the Status reads CREATE_COMPLETE.
- Navigate to the Outputs tab and copy the ARN value.
- Navigate back to Druva CloudRanger and paste the ARN name into the CloudRanger Role ARN text box.
- Click Create to save the AWS Role.
CloudRanger then initiates a Sync with AWS to synchronize with your AWS environment.
Once the synchronization is complete, all resources are highlighted with a green checkmark. This validates that your resources on CloudRanger are now synchronized with your AWS account.
Add new AWS accounts
You can add multiple AWS Accounts and manage them all from an integrated CloudRanger console.
- To add a new account, click the Account dropdown menu on your navigation panel, and then click Add account.
- The Create Account page is displayed. Follow the same process as when creating your initial AWS Access Role.
Note: You will need to generate a new CloudFormation stack for each AWS Account that you wish to manage on Druva CloudRanger.
