Before using Compass, the permission to access your cloud service resources must be granted. This section describes how to authorize Compass to access your cloud assets. An agency will be created to allow Compass to access your cloud resources.


  • You have obtained the account with the Security Administrator permission and its password for logging in to the HUAWEI CLOUD management console.
  • You have bound the user to a user group with the Compass FullAccess permission through IAM. For details, see Creating a User and Granting Permissions.


  • After you agree to the authorization, Compass will set the agency permission based on your selection to scan your cloud assets.
