GCP Configuration Options - Adaptive Applications - BlueCat Gateway - 23.3.2

Cloud Discovery & Visibility Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway

The Configuration Options section of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Setup page defines how BlueCat Configurations are created in Address Manager upon import of GCP infrastructure data.

Within the Google Cloud Platform Setup tab, under Configuration Options, enter the following information:
  • BlueCat Configuration: Enter the name of the configuration that will be created in Address Manager that contains the GCP infrastructure information.

    Attention: The configuration name must not contain the forward slash (/) character as this can cause issues with the discovery and visibility of cloud resources.
    Note: If you do not specify a configuration name, Discovery & Visibility GCP creates configurations in Address Manager based on the GCP Project name and structure.
  • Override Configuration: Select this checkbox to override configurations in Address Manager based on the information in BlueCat Configuration.

    • If you selected Scheduled Discovery in the GCP Monitoring Options, this checkbox is automatically selected and cannot be changed.

    • Enabling Override Configuration updates the configuration in Address Manager that was previously created by Discovery & Visibility GCP.

    • If you configure Discovery & Visibility GCP to retrieve data from a Project with overlapping IP addresses in the VPCs, multiple configurations are created in Address Manager depending on the number of VPCs with overlapping IP addresses.
