By adding a primary AWS Account, you can automatically add all the linked AWS Accounts in your organization in the vRealize Network Insight.



  1. Log in to vRealize Network Insight.
  2. Go to Settings > Accounts and Data Sources > Add Source.
  3. Under the Public Clouds section, click Amazon Web Services.
  4. Select the Collector VM.
  5. Enter your Amazon Access Key ID and corresponding Secret Access Key.
    vRealize Network Insight takes 15–20 minutes to collect your AWS account data.
  6. Click Validate.
    If the number of VMs discovered exceeds the capacity of the platform or a collector node, or both, the validation fails. You will not be allowed to add a data source until you increase the brick size of the platform or create a cluster. The specified capacity for each brick size with and without flows is as follows:
    Brick Size VMs State of Flows
    Large 6k Enabled
    Large 10k Disabled
    Medium 3k Enabled
    Medium 6k Disabled
  7. After validation of your AWS account completes, select the Add Linked Accounts Automatically option.
  8. In Role ARN, enter the role Amazon Resource Names of the linked AWS account to trust the primary AWS Account.
  9. Enter Nickname and Notes for the data source.
  10. Click Submit.
    vRealize Network Insight validates Role ARN and adds the account.
