Add a Datapipe Cloud to a RightScale Account

Table of Contents

Objective

Add your Datapipe IaaS cloud credentials to a RightScale account so that you can use the RightScale Dashboard and API to manage your cloud resources. 

Prerequisites

  • Access to the credentials of an existing Datapipe account. If you do not have a Datapipe cloud account, see Sign-up for a Datapipe Cloud Account.
  • An existing RightScale account that you want to enable to manage your Datapipe resources.
  • In order to add a Datapipe cloud, you must be an 'admin' user of the RightScale account.

Steps

  1. After logging into the Dashboard, go  to Settings > Account Settings > Clouds tab. Click the Connect to a Cloud button.
  2. Click the expand icon next to Datapipe to view all of the available clouds. 
  3. Click the (+) icon next to the cloud you wish to add to the RightScale account.
  4. Provide the required cloud credentials and click Continue.
    • ​Account Name - Log into the CloudPlatform management console and go to the "Accounts" section to view the "Name" of the account. 
    • Api Key - If you do not know this value, contact your cloud administrator (i.e. The person who created the Datapipe cloud account.)
    • Auth Key - If you do not know this value, contact your cloud administrator (i.e. The person who created the Datapipe cloud account.)

  5. It will take a few minutes to validate the cloud credentials. Under Settings > Account Settings > Clouds tab, you should see the current status of the public cloud. You should also see the Datapipe cloud under the Clouds menu of the RightScale Dashboard.
