Configure Access to the CA Cloud Monitor Portlet
This section describes how to configure access to the CA Cloud Monitor portlet in UMP.
The same login credentials for the CA Cloud Monitor portlet are used for each account contact user of an UIM account. However, you must manually edit the wasp configuration so that it can pass through the credentials of the UIM account that the user is associated with. If access is not properly configured, users will see the error message
Not all credentials have been configured for this User Account
when they attempt to log in.
Follow these steps:
  1. Locate the
    Mid
    and
    Token
    values you will need when you edit the wasp configuration:
    1. Log into your CA Cloud Monitor account.
    2. Click the
      Reports
      menu and select the
      Access
      item.
      The reports access page opens.
    3. At the bottom of the page, look for the table labeled
      Tokens can be used to provide access on your account via external applications.
      If there is a token listed, you can use it. If not click the
      Add token
      button to create one.
      Keep this page open, as you will need the
      Mid
      and
      Token
      values found here in step 3.
  2. Verify the UIM Account name(s) to be used for CA Cloud Monitor integration:
    1. Start Infrastructure Manager and log into UIM.
    2. Click the
      Security
      menu >
      Account Administration
      . Make a note of the UIM Account name(s).
      This Account must be attached to an ACL that grants permission to
      Access to CA Cloud Monitor portlet
      . Use the
      Manage Access Control List
      on the
      Security
      menu to verify this.
  3. Modify the wasp configuration:
    1. Open wasp in Raw Configure.
    2. In the left-hand navigation pane, expand the <webapps> section, expand the <cloudmonitor> section, and locate the <accounts> section.
    3. Under <accounts>, create a new section, and name the section using the UIM account name you verified previously.
    4. Add the key
      mid
      to the <
      NMS_account
      > section, and specify the value you located previously.
    5. Add the key
      token
      to the <
      NMS_account
      > section, and specify the value you located previously.
  4. Create sections as needed under the <accounts> section for additional UIM accounts.
  5. Restart wasp.
