IAM Role for AWS Configuration

If the CloudPoint server is deployed in cloud, AWS configuration can be configured to use IAM role for authentication.

See Add a cloud provider for a CloudPoint server.

Before proceeding, ensure the following:

  • IAM role is configured within AWS. See the NetBackup CloudPoint Install and Upgrade Guide for details.

  • After you upgrade NetBackup and CloudPoint to the latest version, you need to update the credentials. Run the tpconfig -update command.

Note:

Post upgrade, credentials are updated to support only IAM role.

The following implementations of IAM role are supported:

  • Source account: In this case, the cloud assets that need to be protected are in the same AWS account as CloudPoint. Thus, AWS cloud is aware of the AWS account ID and role name, you need to only select the region.

  • Cross account: In this case, the cloud assets that need to be protected are in a different AWS account than CloudPoint. Thus, you need to enter the target account and the target role name details along with the region so that CloudPoint can access those assets.

    You need to establish a trust relationship between the source and the target account. For example, if this is the role ARN for the role you want to use to configure the plugin:

    arn:aws:iam::935923755:role/TEST_IAM_ROLE

    So, to configure the plugin, provide the last part of the ARN, the name:TEST_IAM_ROLE

    For more details, refer to the Access AWS Accounts Using IAM Roles related information in the Amazon Web Services documentation.
