Data Sources (cloud)

If you connect a cloud account using Sysdig Secure for cloud, you can review the details on the Data Sources page.

Review Data Sources

Access the Page

  1. Log in to Sysdig Secure and select Data Sources from the User menu at the bottom of the navigation bar.

  2. The Cloud Accounts overview is displayed.

NOTE: If no cloud accounts have been connected yet, you will be linked to the Get Started page to connect them now.

Review Cloud Accounts

Use the Cloud Accounts overview to:

  • Confirm that the incoming data sources you expected are present
  • Get an overview of the status
  • Check whether managed clusters in the accounts were detected and whether an agent was installed with them.
  • Click +Add Account to return to the Get Started page and connect an AWS, GCP, or Azure cloud account.

The page lists:

  • Platform: AWS, GCP, Azure

  • Account ID: The AWS Account ID, GCP Project ID, or Azure Subscription ID

  • Alias: As defined when connected

  • Region(#): Each account may be deployed in multiple regions; click on a numbered entry to expand and view all the regions.

  • Date Added: Date the account was added to Sysdig Secure

  • Date Last Seen: Date of last observed activity on the account/region.

  • Clusters Connected (x/y): This displays the number of managed clusters detected in the account/region (y) and the number of clusters with at least one agent installed (x).

    For example:

    • 0/0 = no clusters contain an agent, no clusters detected
    • 1/17 = 1 cluster contains an agent, 17 total clusters detected

Review Managed Clusters

From the Clusters Connected column you can drill down to the Kubernetes Cluster details :

From here, you could gather the information needed to connect agents to the detected managed clusters.
