Modify an Azure Account in CloudCheckr CMx

As a CloudCheckr CMx customer, you can modify account details for any accounts listed in the Accounts tab on the Account Hierarchy page.

However, what you can modify depends on the cloud provider associated with your selected account. And for Azure accounts, the sub-type will also play a role in what you can modify in your account.

This topic defines what we mean by sub-type and shows you how to modify an Azure account with or without a sub-type.


What Is a Sub-Type?

The sub-type identifies the Azure account type, which is based on the Azure program that you are a part of—Enterprise Agreement (EA) for example—or the task you want to perform—such as viewing billing data for a single subscription.

The option you select on the Configuration page determines your sub-type.

Click Sub-Types to see how your configuration selection maps to the sub-types:

If you select:

Your sub-type is:

Collect billing data from my Enterprise Agreement

AzureEnterpriseAgreement

Collect billing data from my Partner Center/CSP Account

AzureCloudSolutionProvider

Collect resource information from my Azure subscription

AzureSubs

Collect information from my Azure Active Directory

AzureActiveDirectory

View billing data for a single subscription

MapToPayer

If you completed the credential process and go to List view, you will see a icon in the Credentials column and the Sub Type column will be populated. If you have not completed the credentials, you will see a icon in the Credentials column and the Sub Type column will not be populated.
