AWS data in Address Manager - Adaptive Applications - BlueCat Gateway - 23.3.2

Cloud Discovery & Visibility Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway

After configuring and running discovery for a Amazon Web Services (AWS) system, Cloud Discovery & Visibility (CDV) will import Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure data into Address Manager.

Within Address Manager, CDV also creates tags and tag groups for blocks and networks that it discovers to distinguish them from user-created resources. AWS Tag names and hierarchy are as follows:

  • CDV Directory (Tag group) > Amazon Web Services (Tag) > AWS account name (Tag) > Region (Tag)

    Where "AWS account name" is the name of the relevant AWS account, and "Region" is the resources' region.

Attention: If you update the name of a Configuration or View in Address Manager after you enable discovery and visibility jobs, CDV will no longer import AWS infrastructure changes into Address Manager. To import infrastructure changes into Address Manager with the changed configuration and view names, you must reconfigure the discovery and visibility jobs.

The following examples illustrate how different types of sample data are imported as Address Manager resources.
