USM Anywhere™

Creating an Application and Obtaining Azure Credentials

To enable USM Anywhere to monitor your Microsoft Azure subscription, you must create an application that grants permission to USM Anywhere to fetch data using the Azure software development kit (SDK) and Azure REST API. USM Anywhere requires the following credentials:

Azure Credential USM Anywhere Field Name
azure_tenant_id Azure Tenant ID
azure_subscription_id Azure Subscription ID
azure_application_id Azure Application ID
azure_application_key Azure Application Key

If you're a Windows OS user, you can create the application in one of two ways:

If you're not a Windows OS user, you must create the application manually from your Azure subscription.

Important: You must have global administrator privileges to create an application and obtain credentials.


You can now complete the Azure Credentials step of the USM Anywhere Sensor setup (see Azure Credentials).
