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. In the top bar, click Explorer (in XL Deploy 5.5.x, Click Repository).
  2. In the sidebar hover over Infrastructure, click Menu image, and then select the provider type (In XL Deploy 5.5.x, right-click Providers and select New). For example, if you are using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), select aws > ec2.Cloud.
  3. In the Name field, enter a unique name for the provider.
  4. Enter the information required for the provider. For example, if you are using Amazon EC2, you must enter your access key ID and secret access key.

After you create a provider, you can add it to an environment.
