Before getting started with the Cloud IAM Governance through Access Explorer, we recommend confirming the prerequisites available on this page.
The content here outlines some high-level requirements for using the Access Explorer and the documentation that is available for this feature. As always, if you have issues or questions, reach out to us through the Customer Support Portal.
IAM Governance - Access Explorer
The InsightCloudSec IAM Governance capability is managed through a function in the InsightCloudSec platform labelled as "Access Explorer." This feature of InsightCloudSec is designed to provide governance around cloud IAM.
For ease of reference and to avoid confusion around using the term IAM (since many cloud providers use this term) we will stick to the term "Access Explorer" to refer to this functionality.
Access Explorer currently supports the AWS IAM model.
- A running instance of InsightCloudSec with Domain Admin permissions
- At least one AWS Cloud
However, before you get started, we'd also recommend that you review the Best Practices and Limitations outlined below as well as the detailed Recommended Prerequisites provided in the Access Explorer - Setup documentation.
As stated, our initial launch supports AWS and focuses on providing IAM support that resources the InsightCloudSec platform currently supports.
Access Explorer will continue to expand support and capabilities as we work with our customers to incorporate their feedback and requirements into our roadmap. If you have questions about the specifics of what we support or questions around a certain use case, reach out to us through the Customer Support Portal.
