Data Sources (cloud)

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

From the Integrations menu, access the Data Sources content from the Inbound entries:

Review Data Sources

Access the Page

  1. Log in to Sysdig Secure and select Integrations > Inbound|Cloud Accounts from 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

    Connect the Account:

    Note: In certain rare cases, a cloud account may have been connected using an old mechanism and needs to be re-onboarded. In this case, you can use the Quick Link to jump to the Get Started page and reconnect the account.

Review Managed Kubernetes

From the Managed Kubernetes tab you can review cluster details and instrument a cluster if needed.

Filtering Actions

You can:

  • Search by keyword
  • Filter by platform or account number
  • Sort by Status, Cluster Name, Account ID, or Region

Use Instrumentation Modal

For un-instrumented clusters detected on an account, the modal under More helps speed the instrumentation process.

  1. Click Instructions to Instrument. The instrumentation popup is displayed, with your access key and cluster-specific data prefilled.

  2. Follow the two-step procedure to generate the kubeconfig and install the agent.


    Click Copy Script to Instrument to get both parts in a single script you can deploy.
