The first step is to choose to add the OpenStack Cloud to your Storage Made Easy Account. This will occur either as a first step on logging into the account and adding a Cloud for the first time, or later from your DashBoard (
which is accessible from the right sidebar after login to the website).
You need to authorise Storage Made Easy to access your OpenStack account. To do this you need to enter:
endpoint: in the format of IP:Port
username: your username
password: your account password
Storage Made Easy uses this information to ask for access to your OpenStack account on demand.
All authentication data is stored encrypted, with the encryption key being stored in a separate key server for security.
Note that your OpenStack Cloud must have a public IP Address to be able to be accessed unless you are using the on-premise Storage Made Easy Cloud Appliance
