Prerequisites

Opsview Monitor Version 6.0.0 or newer

Setup Microsoft Azure for Monitoring

To monitor your Azure environment, you need to configure it for monitoring. This requires Administrator access on Azure.

You need to retrieve the following credentials, which will allow Opsview Monitor access to the metrics provided by Azure:

  • Subscription ID
  • Tenant/Directory ID
  • Client/Application ID
  • Secret Key

Follow the steps below to retrieve this information.

Step 1: Find the Subscription ID

The Subscription ID can be found in the Subscriptions section under the All services section in the Azure dashboard.

Find Azure Subscription ID

Find Azure Subscription ID

Step 2: Find the Tenant/Directory ID

The Tenant/Directory ID can be found in the Azure Active Directory section under the Properties section in the Azure dashboard.

Find Azure Tenant/Directory ID

Step 3: Find the Client/Application ID for your application

You need to create and register your application if you haven't already. For more information, refer to: Create an Azure Active Directory application

The Client/Application ID can be found in the Azure Active Directory section under the App registrations section in the Azure dashboard.

Find Azure Client/Application ID

Step 4: Generate the Secret Key for your application

You will need to create a Secret Key for your application, once this has been created its value will be hidden, so save the value during creation.

To create the Secret Key, select your application from the list, select the Certificates and secrets section and then click on New client secret.

Specify a description and expiration date for your key and then click Add.
