In XL Deploy, a provider is a set of credentials needed to connect to a cloud technology. You can group providers logically in environments, and then provision packages to them.

To create a provider:

  1. Click Repository in the top bar.
  2. In XL Deploy 5.5.x, right-click Providers and select New, then select the provider type.

    In XL Deploy 6.0.0 and later, right-click Infrastructure, then select the provider type.

    For example, if you are using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), select aws > ec2.Cloud.

  3. In the Name box, enter a unique name for the provider.
  4. Enter the required information for the provider.

    For example, if you are using Amazon EC2, you must enter your access key ID and secret access key.

  5. Click Save.
