IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud and IKS & OpenShift Clusters

IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud

Before you begin discovering and backing up your IBM Virtual Private Cloud resources, you must have:

  • Permissions for IBM Cloud classic and VPC.

  • An IBM Cloud API key (VPC API key).

Note: Your IBM Cloud API key (VPC API key) must have “Reader, Writer” access. You can verify the level of access in IBM Cloud console by clicking Manage > Access (IAM) and selecting Authorizations.

  • An IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) bucket and its Resource Instance ID (service credentials having manager role permissions). The COS bucket will be used to store your images and volumes during the migration process and its Resource Instance ID will allow VPC+ to access it.

    - Learn how to set up your IBM Cloud Object Storage here. 
    
    - Learn how to grant access between VPC Image Services and COS (only required for primary images and secondary volumes migration).
    
    - Learn how to create your service credentials and get your Resource Instance ID here.
    
IKS & OpenShift Clusters

Before you begin discovering and backing up your IKS and OpenShift clusters, you must have the following permissions:

  • Ensure that you have the following IBM Cloud IAM access policies.

    • Administrator platform role for VPC Infrastructure.
    • Administrator platform role for IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
    • Writer or Manager service role for IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
    • Administrator platform role for Container Registry.
    • Writer or Manager service role for IBM Cloud Object Storage.
  • Make sure that the API key for the region and resource group that you plan to create the VPC Gen 2 cluster in is set up with the correct infrastructure permissions.
