If you select Visibility as your Monitoring option (in the Monitoring Options section of the Azure Setup page), when you run Discovery, Cloud Discovery & Visibility (CDV) creates visibility jobs to monitor the status of discovered resources. On an Azure infraststructure, these jobs are organized into Visibility Managers: An abstracted layer to simplify your management of Azure visibility jobs.

A Visibility Manager contains one or more Visibility jobs. When managing execution of visibility jobs in the Visibility Management page, you perform actions on the Visibility Manager instead of a specific job. CDV then performs that action on all jobs within that Visibility Manager.

Note: A Visibility Manager does not represent a specific resource or object that might appear in a network. It is simply a convenient way to organize Visibility jobs when Discovery is performed on multiple resource groups or subscriptions.

The jobs that a Visibility Manager contains depend on the subscription and/or resource groups that you specify in the Azure Credentials page:

  • Discovery of a specific subscription with a specific resource group: CDV will create a single Visibility Manager that contains a single Visibility job.

  • Discovery of a specific subscription with all resource groups: CDV will create a single Visibility Manager that contains multiple Visibility jobs — a single Visibility job for each resource group.

  • Discovery of all subscriptions with all resource groups: CDV will create a single Visibility Manager that contains multiple Visibility jobs — a single Visibility job for each resource group within each subscription.
