Here’s how to connect your Amazon Cloudwatch account to Grow.
First, log in to your Grow account and click Add Metric. You will need to authorize your account before you can build metrics.
In order to connect your Amazon Cloudwatch account, you’ll need your connection name, access key ID, and secret access key. There is a fourth field where you can input the region, but this is an optional field.
Go ahead and enter the name of your connection. To get the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key, you will need to create an IAM user in your CloudWatch account. (If you haven’t done this, here are instructions on doing it.)
Note: The Access Key ID and Secret Access Key are only available when you first create the user, so be sure to record them somewhere in case you need them later.
Enter your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key, then press Submit.
And that’s it! You’re good to go.
