Connect an AWS account
Microtica provisions infrastructure on your own AWS account. In order to enable Microtica to manage cloud resources, you need to connect your AWS account and grant the proper access permissions.
Microtica authenticates with your AWS account by using AWS STS assume role service to generate temporary access tokens. Generated tokens are then used in every subsequent call to your account.
To connect your AWS account go to project Integrations section and select the Cloud Accounts tab. From here click on Connect AWS Account button.
By clicking on Connect button in the modal, you will be redirected to your AWS account. Confirm the required capabilities by ticking the checkmark and click on Create stack button.
Once the CloudFormation stack is created, your AWS account will automatically appear in the Microtica Console.
To completely revoke Microtica access to your AWS account you just need to remove the previously created CloudFormation stack. After that, Microtica will no longer have access to your cloud account.
