I am currently using cloud storage libraries configured with AWS IAM accounts. Our organization uses Azure for SSO to AWS.

Is it possible to reconfigure the cloud libraries to use Azure credentials?

Hello nor,


Thank you for your question.


Could you please clarify this question further for us?


Are you looking to manage your AWS IAM accounts using Azure SSO?  Or are you looking to use an Azure Login Account to log into your AWS Libraries?


Please note that for an AWS Cloud Library managed by IAM log ins, the log in credential role you provide in CommVault must match a role or role user in AWS that has the IAM role assigned.


Further details on this are available in AWS’ online documentation.

For access to the S3 storage, the IAM user Access Keys are still required, just using the Azure SSO Login may not be able to get access/secret key.

You can, however, reach out to AWS S3 Support to request if they have a methodology to enable the Azure SSO Feature to have access to the S3 storage.

Thank you @Josh Perkoff 

I will reach out to our AWS Account Manager. If there is a solution I will update this thread for any others that might be interested.
