Value Names (DivvyCloud vs. InsightCloudSec)

Some examples, screen captures, and components use our former product name (DivvyCloud vs. InsightCloudSec). Updates to the naming of these components will be communicated when changes are made, but note that the name difference does not affect functionality within the product.

Prerequisites

Before getting started with this installation, you must have the following:

  • A functioning InsightCloudSec platform (20.4.4 or later)
  • Appropriate InsightCloudSec permissions (Domain Admin or Org Admin)
  • Administrative credentials to your Azure Portal and an active Azure AD subscription

📘

Before Getting Started

The completion of this setup requires a lot of back and forth between your Azure Console and InsightCloudSec, each step where this changes is clearly specified.

We recommend that you plan on enough time (approximately 15-20 minutes) to complete the process before you start so you don't lose the work and have to start over.
