Exoscale is a European/Swiss IaaS cloud provider and is supported by cscanner. Under the hood it implements a CloudStack-like API.

The configuration goes like this:

    type: exoscale
    key: ""
    secret: ""

Note, that cloudstack.ini is currently not supported.

Creating credentials

Exoscale does not support non-personalized users, therefore it is recommended to create a pseudo-user, such as cscanner@example.com and use the API keys for Cscanner. This only works if you selected "For Teams" when creating the account.

To invite a user on Exoscale go through the following steps:

  1. In the top right corner select the correct organization.
  2. Go to Account → Users and go through the invitation process

To get the API key for that account, go through the following steps:

  1. Log in to your pseudo-account
  2. Go to Account → Profile → API keys
  3. Copy the API key and secret into the configuration as indicated above.
