Q: What do I enter for Service Bus credentials during the Setup Wizard stage?
A: During monitoring, CloudMonix connects directly to your SQL Azure database and queries Data Management Views. For this purpose, it requires credentials that have VIEW STATE permissions and firewall access to your database.
- To provide an username/password to CloudMonix with proper VIEW STATE permissions, please follow instructions in this article.
- Since CloudMonix monitoring agents run in Azure and since most SQL Azure databases are open to be connected from services running anywhere in Azure, it is often not necessary to configure firewall rules for CloudMonix. However, if your SQL Azure database is closed to "any" Azure services, please create firewall rules to allow connections from CloudMonix. This article outlines CloudMonix list of static IPs.
