The following section defines what information is imported from the AWS infrastructure.

Attention:
  • If you update the name of a Configuration or View in Address Manager after you have enabled discovery and visibility, Cloud Discovery & Visibility AWS will no longer import AWS infrastructure changes into Address Manager.
  • If you are configuring Cloud Discovery & Visibility AWS to discover resources in your AWS GovCloud environment, AWS GovCloud does not use external Route 53 zones. To include Route 53 zones as part of a discovery job, you must link them to a non-AWS GovCloud account that points to those Route 53 zones. For more information, refer to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/govcloud-us/latest/UserGuide/setting-up-route53.html.

  • AWS Public IP Ranges—select this checkbox to import all AWS public address space information. The public VPCs are converted into IPv4 and IPv6 blocks and networks on Address Manager.
  • AWS EC2 Instances—select this checkbox to import all EC2 instance information. The EC2 instances are converted into devices on Address Manager.
  • AWS ELBv2 Load Balancers—select this checkbox to import all ELBv2 information. This is converted into the ELBv2 device type on Address Manager.
