Prerequisites for supervision
To put AWS in supervision via ServiceNav, it is necessary to create an access key with read rights on CloudWatch.
Creating a user
To add a user go to the menu IAM → Users → add user
Enter the user name and select "access type by programming".
Add CloudWatchReadOnly strategy
Leave the other settings as defaults.
When the user is created, a keyID and a secret access key will be displayed, which can be retrieved and stored.
Implementation in ServiceNav
At company level in the menu Configuration > General > Supervision Accounts of ServiceNav, add these two pieces of information to the Amazon Web Service monitoring account.
This supervisory account also requires the AWS region.
You can find the list of regions in the top right corner of the AWS management console:
The supervision account can be overloaded at the equipment level if you are using multiple AWS regions.
