Obtaining Credentials for Cloudera Director
Create an Active Directory (AD) application and service principal. The service principal is tied to the AD application, and Cloudera Director uses the service principal credentials to create and delete resources on Microsoft Azure. Therefore, you must make sure the AD application has the contributor role in your Azure subscription, which allows permission to create and delete resources. If you are not sure about these settings, contact your Active Directory administrator or Microsoft Azure Support.
The service principal is typically created by a system administrator or security administrator of your organization. This person must have administrator privileges for your Microsoft Azure subscription.
