Cloud Credentials

Cloud Credentials are used to provide Nirmata access to your public or private cloud resources.

The setup credentials for any cloud provider has the following general flow:

  1. Create the Cloud Credentials in Nirmata
  2. Prepare a VM template, or similar construct to provision cloud instances, as detailed in the host-groups section.
  3. Create one or more Host Groups in Nirmata

The setup for private clouds, has one additional step. You will first need run the Nirmata Private Cloud Agent and then configure a Cloud Provider. See details in the private-cloud-setup setup section.
