Connecting your AWS cloud


Before connecting your cloud, make sure that you're assigned the following AWS managed policies or an equivalent custom policy granting full access to resources:

  • arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/IAMFullAccess

  • arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/ServiceQuotasFullAccess

Connecting your cloud


If you're using CloudShell, add the ./ prefix to the biganimal command (./biganimal).

To connect your cloud:

  1. Open AWS CloudShell in your browser.

  2. Create a BigAnimal CLI credential:

    biganimal credential create --name <cred> 
  3. To set up your cloud provider, run the setup-csp command:

     biganimal cloud-provider setup  

    The command checks for cloud account readiness and displays the results.

  4. If the following readiness checks aren't met for your cloud service provider, see Configure your AWS account to manually configure your cloud:

    • Is the AWS CLI configured to access your AWS account?

    • Is the limit on the number of vCPUs and network load balancers (NLBs) in your region enough for your clusters?

    If the cloud readiness checks pass, your cloud account is successfully set up.

  5. Connect your cloud account to BigAnimal:

    biganimal cloud-provider connect --provider aws --project <project-name>

    After your cloud account is successfully connected to BigAnimal, you and other users with the correct permissions can create clusters.
