Credentials tab is a central management panel for all tools you can connect with Taikun. Whenever you want to connect your Cloud provider, Backup Storage, or Showback tool, the Credentials section is right for you!

Cloud credentials

The Cloud Credentials tab is where you can manage connected Cloud providers. This includes adding, modifying, or deleting connections of your Cloud services that include:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • OpenStack
  • Tanzu
  • Proxmox
  • Openshift

Each Cloud provider has different parameters that will be reflected in the created Table. Tables can be sorted differently depending on the available data, and you can also expand columns to see a detailed overview.

Check how every supported Cloud Provider can be connected in this article.

Backup credentials

Taikun’s Backup system will allow you to back up your Project data to any S3-compatible storage offered on the market. The Backup Credentials tab is where you can connect your Backup storage to ensure that the data stays safe.

Up here, you will find a table with parameters of connected storage that involve:

  • ID
  • Organization
  • S3 Access Key ID
  • S3 Endpoint
  • S3 Name
  • Associated Projects
  • Actions
