Version
23.3.2

The Configuration Options section of the Microsoft Azure Setup page lets you specify how Cloud Discovery & Visibility (CDV) creates BlueCat Configurations in Address Manager when importing discovered Azure infrastructure resources.

You can select from three Configuration modes for Configuration creation conventions:

  • Default: CDV creates separate Address Manager configurations for each resource group. Configurations will be named:

    <Subscription name>/<Resource Group name>

    or

    <Subscription name>/<Resource Group name>/<VNet overlap name>
  • Custom: CDV creates separate Address Manager configurations for each resource group. Configuration names will incorporate the custom name that you enter in the BlueCat Configuration field:

    <Custom BlueCat Configuration name>/<Subscription name>/<Resource Group name>

    or

    <Custom BlueCat Configuration name>/<Subscription name>/<Resource Group name>/<VNet overlap name>
  • Combined: CDV combines resource information from all resource groups into a single Address Manager configuration, with the custom name that you enter in the BlueCat Configuration field:

    <Custom BlueCat Configuration name>

    or

    <Custom BlueCat Configuration name>/<Subscription name>/<Resource Group name>/<VNet overlap name>


Configuration Options settings

The Configuration Options section of the Azure Setup page has the following settings.

Field/Option Description
BlueCat Configuration

(Disabled if using the Default Configuration mode for Configuration names.)

A customized name to use for configurations that will be created in Address Manager to hold information about the Azure infrastructure and its resources. When the Configuration mode is Custom or Combined, this field cannot be empty.

Attention: Configuration names cannot contain forward slash characters (/). Doing so can cause issues and errors with Discovery and Visibility of cloud resources.
Note: If you configure Cloud Discovery & Visibility to retrieve data from a Resource group that has overlapping IP addresses in the Virtual Network, CDV creates multiple Configurations in Address Manager depending on the number of VPCs with overlapping IP addresses.
Override Configuration

(If Scheduled Discovery is selected in the Azure Monitoring Options, this checkbox is automatically selected and cannot be changed.)

Select this checkbox to automatically override existing Configurations in Address Manager that have the same name.
