Re: What AWS user permissions has to be for SiteScope monitors

Hello,

 

i guess you want to monitor running instance in your cloud ?

 

Two ways:

 

1) manage your instance as a standard machine, but in AWS, instance have their IP and name change frequently, so this is not the best way to do. In this case the Sitescope user permissions are exactly the same as for a standard machine

 

2) you can use the AWS monitor integrated with Sitescope, for this purpose you'll need the API credentials (access key + secret access key) with account Read-Only on all cloudwatch component
