For governance and compliance, controlling access to your systems—including your monitoring solution—is key.

IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig, a fully managed, enterprise grade monitoring service for application visibility, alerting, and troubleshooting now has Sysdig Teams support with IBM Cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) for fine-grained access control to metrics, dashboards, and more. 

Together, IBM and Sysdig have launched and continue to enhance this offering that provides exciting end-to-end monitoring capabilities in the IBM Cloud.

Sysdig offers enterprise users several capabilities designed to ensure security and control. With Sysdig, you can isolate data without deploying isolated infrastructure. Sysdig Teams give you fine-grained permissions to lock down access to individual hosts, services, namespaces, containers, and more—all within a single managed system. 

IAM enables you to securely authenticate users and control access to all cloud resources consistently in the IBM Cloud. You grant permissions through policies that you define on the IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig service in the account.

Enterprise access control and isolation

The use of teams provides a strategic way to organize groups, streamline workflows, or protect data as needed by an organization. Users now have a clean IAM integration with Sysdig Team scope on data access control in order to do the following:

  • Reduce the exposure of data to those who actually need it.
  • Make users more productive by focusing them on data that is most relevant to them.
  • Establish a consistent user experience for access control with other IBM Cloud services. 

A Sysdig Team is the association between users, their data visibility, and scope. For example, as a member of the “Development Team,” user can only access metrics from certain environments. This scope is defined in the Sysdig Monitor UI, where the admin will define a team and the visibility conditions for that team. 

Create a team

  1. Log in to Sysdig Monitor as an administrator and select Settings.
  2. Select Teams.
  3. Click Add Team.
  4. Configure the team options and click Save:

Assign a user to a team

From the IAM UI, the admin user can grant roles and membership for a particular Sysdig instance and team to users or access groups:

Or two, they could rely on a cloud data warehouse that is easy to set up, but only allows lagging analytics. Even then, each solution lacks something, forcing builders to deploy other databases for…
