The Torque Credentials store allows your CloudFormation and Terraform grains to securely access your cloud authentication details from a single location. Credentials are similar to Parameters, but unlike parameters which are single-value parameters, credentials are classes that contain multiple parameters. Torque credentials are supported on AWS and Azure.

To add a credential:

  1. Go to Administration > Credentials.
  2. Click Add Credentials.

    Locale Dropdown

  3. Give the credential a name and optionally a description.
  4. Select the cloud provider (AWS / Azure).
  5. Enter the provider's authentication details.
    • For an AWS Role Arn credential type, make sure you have a Role Arn that allows Torque access.
  6. Click Apply.
  7. Reference the credential in the grain's authentication section.
