IAM cloud connections

Learn about connections integration with IAM, which provides a consolidated connection to various external technology providers in one single place.
IAM cloud connections enhance the capabilities of Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications by connecting clouds, DevSecOps tools, and any other technology that interacts with the platform.
You can establish a new connection within minutes and centrally store credentials in a secure manner. If available, based on the connection type, you will be presented with a set of technology provider recommended Identity and Access Management (IAM) security policies so you can understand what permissions are needed to be pre-configured on the provider to enable the full potential value of Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications feature
The following permissions are needed to be able to manage connections. The
Platform Administrator
role, which is the out-of-the-box role granted to you when the Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications account is first created, is the only role that includes all these permissions. Alternatively, as a
Platform Administrator
, you can create Custom Roles and assign them the Roles permissions.
