Cloud Target account operations

Edit Cloud provider account

To edit an existing cloud provider account, click on the three dots at the end of the row of the cloud provider and then click "Edit". Refer the image below.

After clicking on the "Edit" the account details screen appears. Only those values that are permissible to be modified would have editable fields, other fields would be greyed out to ensure they cant be modified.

As shown in the figure above, Only the Environment, Namespace & the Permissions fields of this account are editable, rest all of the fields are greyed out, that means, it cant be modified. Make the necessary changes and click on the "Update" button on the above screen to save your changes.

Sync Accounts with Spinnaker

When you hover the mouse over the button "+Sync CD Accounts", it displays the message stating "The account added here need to be explicitly synced with Spinnaker only then they can be used. Note that this action would also trigger of restart of Spinnaker".

This means, after you add new cloud provider accounts, you need to click on the "+Sync CD Accounts" button to explicitly sync these accounts with Spinnaker.

You click on the button to sync accounts with Spinnaker, the following confirmation box appears, asking you to confirm whether you want to proceed with the Spinnaker restart, since it would take around 3-5 minutes.

If you select "Ok" in the above figure, the Spinnaker restart operations would trigger and the confirmation message is shown as in the figure below.

As a best practice, when you want to add multiple cloud provider accounts, its better to perform the sync accounts one shot after adding all the accounts, instead of sync'ing accounts and triggering Spinnaker restart after every single account added.

Delete Cloud Provider Account

To delete an account, click on the three dots at the end of the row of the cloud provider entry in the above table and click "Delete".

After clicking on delete, a confirmation dialog box appears to get your confirmation on the delete operations. Click on "Yes, delete It!" as shown in the below image.
