Configure a Subscription Account [Legacy]
To integrate your Azure subscription with CloudCheckr, you will need to perform two steps:
- In Azure, you will access your subscription and create and register an app that will communicate with Azure Active Directory.
- In CloudCheckr, you will apply the values associated with your Azure Active Directory account and new app to allow CloudCheckr to monitor your resources.
Configure Your Azure Subscription in the Azure Portal
- Log in to the Azure management portal.
The portal link you choose depends on your subscription type:
The Azure portal opens and displays the directory that contains the subscription you need to configure.
- From the left navbar, click Azure Active Directory. The Azure Active Directory blade opens.
- In the Manage section of the Active Directory blade, click Properties. The Properties blade opens.
- Click the icon to the right of the Directory ID text field and copy the ID.
- In the Manage section of the Azure Active Directory blade, click App registrations (Legacy). The App registrations (Legacy) blade opens.
- Click New application registration to create a new app. The Create blade opens.
- Create your application:
- Type a name for the application. (For example: CloudCheckr Service)
- From the Application Type drop-down menu, select Web app /API.
- In the Sign-on URL text field, type https://localhost.
- Click Create.
The Registered app blade opens.
- Copy the Application ID.
- Click the Settings icon in the Registered app blade and select Keys.
The Keys blade opens.
- Type a name for the key, select when you want it to expire, and click Save.
Azure creates a new secret key.
- Copy the value of the secret key and save it immediately since you will not be able to view it again.
You will now have three values: Directory ID, Application ID, and the secret key.
- From the left navbar, click All resources.
The All resources blade opens.
- From the list, select the resource that you want CloudCheckr to monitor.
The blade for the selected resource opens.
- Locate the Subscription ID and copy it.
- From the blade of the selected resource, click Access control (IAM). The Access control (IAM) blade opens.
- Select Add > Add Role Assignment. The Add role assignment blade opens.
- Create a role assignment:
- From the Role drop-down list, select Reader.
- In the Select text field, type the name of the application that you created.
- The Access control (IAM) blade lists your application with the Reader role.
Configure Your Subscription Account in CloudCheckr
- From the top right of the Partners page, click the NEW ACCOUNT button.
The New Account screen displays.

- From the Cloud Provider drop-down menu, select Microsoft Azure.
The Configure Account page opens.
