Getting start with Cloud Automation

This article gives you the quick guideline to use Cloud Automation for the first time you access to the system.

You need to register the cloud accounts with sufficient permissions. These cloud accounts help you to implement the tasks as Resource Control, Resource Schedule, Service Catalog.

To get started with Instance Control module:

1. Manual control: You can easily start/stop/restart instances by click the control button.

2. Schedule control: In case you expect to periodically start/stop a certain resource, you can create a calendar and select the expected instances.

To get started with Service Catalog module:

1. Create a template: You can select one of supported stacks as Cloud Formation, Azure Resource Manager, Terraform and create the corresponding template.

2. Launch template: Create a deployment to launch template
