Step 3/3: Set up a Netskope instance with Azure App Registration credentials

Once you have created an Microsoft Entra ID application and assigned the relevant permissions/roles, you can now create an Azure app instance in the Netskope UI.

To create an Azure instance:

  1. Log in to the Netskope tenant UI.

  2. Navigate to Settings > Configure App Access > Classic > IaaS > Microsoft Azure > SETUP.

    The New Setup window opens.

  3. In the New Setup window, enter the following parameters: 

    1. In the Netskope Instance section, enter the following details:

      1. Instance Name: Enter a unique name for the Netskope Instance.

      2. Admin Email: Enter the email address of the administrator for email notification.

      3. Connection Type: Select Forensic.

        Few of the instance type options may be disabled. Contact your Netskope sales representative for additional information.

    2. In the Azure App Registration Credentials section, enter the following details:

      1. Directory ID: Enter the directory ID you noted from Get the Application ID and Directory ID section in Step 1/3: Configure an Azure AD Application for Forensics.

      2. Application ID: Enter the application ID you noted from Get the Application ID and Directory ID section in Step 1/3: Configure an Azure AD Application for Forensics.

      3. Client Key: Enter the authentication key you noted from Get the Authentication Key section in Step 1/3: Configure an Azure AD Application for Forensics.

  4. Click Save, then click Grant Access for the Azure instance you just created.

Refresh your browser, and you should see a green check icon next to the instance name.

Once you set up the instance with forensic enabled, you should create a forensic profile. To learn more: Creating a Forensic Profile for Public Cloud Storage.
