Set up a cloud provider account connection in VMware Tanzu Mission Control so you can start creating clusters. This procedure walks you through the process of creating a cloud provider account connection with AWS using Role ARN.
A cloud provider account connection is only necessary for provisioning new clusters from Tanzu Mission Control. If you don’t want to create clusters right now, you can skip this section.
Before you connect to an AWS cloud provider account:
credential.adminrole in Tanzu Mission Control.
Do the following to connect to an AWS account:
In the Tanzu Mission Control console, click Administration in the left navigation pane.
On the Administration page, click Credentials > Create Credentials > AWS EKS.
On the Create credential page, provide a name for the credential, and click Next.
The name that you enter is the name that appears in the list of connected accounts on the Administration page.
Click Generate Template.
Tanzu Mission Control generates and downloads the template.
After the template is generated, click Next.
In AWS, create a standard CloudFormation stack using the downloaded template.
After a few minutes, the Stack details page shows your new stack with the status of
CREATE\_COMPLETE. Click the refresh button to update the status.
After the stack is created, retrieve the role ARN.
arn:aws:iam::01234567890:role/clusterlifecycle.tmc.cloud.vmware.com), and then return to the Tanzu Mission Control console to finish creating the connection.
In the Tanzu Mission Control console, paste the Role ARN that you copied from the AWS console in the Role ARN field.
Click Create to create the connection to your AWS account.
