    1. Integration Name: Define an integration name.

    2. URL: This is the URL for your MCM API endpoint. This should be the same that you use to connect to the IBM MCM CloudPak console. Be sure to use the format scheme://host:port.

    3. Grafeas API Key:: You need to create a Grafeas API key that Sysdig will use to authorize and authenticate.

    4. Account ID: (Optional) You can leave it blank to use the default value of id-mycluster-account. If you want to use a different account name, provide it here.

    5. Data to send: Currently, Sysdig only supports sending policy events.

    6. Select whether or not you want to allow insecure connections (i.e. invalid or self-signed certificate on the receiving side).

  6. Click the Save button to save the integration.

Here is an example of how events forwarded from Sysdig Secure are displayed on IBM Multicloud Managment Console:
