To enable AWS for your cloud, follow the procedure below:
Go to your OnApp Control Panel > Admin > Settings > Configuration and switch on the Allow users connect to AWS toggle. This will enable AWS for the cloud.
Go to the Admin > Users menu and click the name of the appropriate user.
Find Amazon Web Services section and click Connect.
To connect, provide the following credentials:
AWS access key - go to your Amazon profile > Security credentials > Users > Manage
AWS secret access key - use the same path as above. For security reasons, AWS secret access key is stored encrypted in the OnApp DB.
In the left navigation pane of your Control Panel, a new entry AWS > EC2 instances will appear.
If AWS is disabled, the above option will disappear from the dashboard, but all users’ credentials will be kept in OnApp DB.
