Visibility – View Dashboards on OSCAR Posture

CoreStack provides the Cloud Governance Posture for each of the 5 Pillars of OSCAR. You can review the posture by visiting the respective dashboards of Operations, Security, Cost, Access and Resource. The Account Governance Dashboard provides a consolidated view of all your accounts and also the posture and assessment score for them.

📘

Note: It may take 6-12 hours from the time you onboarded the account to have the data fully reflected on the dashboards.

Account Governance

The Account Governance Dashboard provides a consolidated view of all you cloud accounts across multiple clouds and their OSCAR Governance Posture summary. It is the one place you get a view of all your cloud accounts and their current cloud governance posture. The different sections within this dashboard are explained below.

Cloud Account Summary

This section provides you a count of Active Cloud Accounts that are currently onboarded in the specific CoreStack Tenant. To view the cloud accounts from another Tenant, you need to switch to that Tenant using the Tenant Selection dropdown at the top right (header).

You will see a box for each Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP​) showing the no. of cloud accounts onboarded and currently in active state. The first box (cloud) is selected by default.

📘

Note: If you have account_admin privileges and you have selected the Master Tenant (indicated by a key symbol in the Tenant selection dropdown list) you will be able to see cloud accounts across all tenants.

Based on the cloud selection in the cloud account summary above, the cloud accounts from that cloud are listed in a grid as shown below.
