Assets discoveries

Assets discoveries let you browse your IT infrastructure and detect computers that are not yet registered into Cyberwatch.

You may set them up from the menu Discoveries. Each discovery create a list of discovered assets that may later be monitored.

The list of assets discovered by a discovery is accessible by clicking on the corresponding List button on the right of the table.

The group field is proposed regardless of the type of discovery scan. It allows you to assign a group to any asset associated with an asset discovered during the scan. Thus any previously supervised asset which would be raised by this scan will be assigned to the group. Thereafter it will be also the case of any newly supervised asset then automatically associated with one of the assets discovered during this scan.

Registering discovered assets

From the assets list for a given discovery in Discoveries, you may register newly discovered assets as agentless connections through a bulk action.

This feature is mainly targeted at monitoring an IT infrastructure with common authentication credentials for the Cyberwatch account. Otherwise, you may explicitly create agentless connections through Assets management > Agentless connections, or choose an alternative method like deploying agents.

Agentless mode connection credential

When all the assets discovered by a specific discovery are meant to be monitored by Cyberwatch, you may configure a template agentless connection whose configuration will be replicated to automatically register newly discovered assets. Applied on a recurrent discovery, this feature enables automatic registration of assets whenever a computer is added, for example, to an Active Discovery.

The Agentless mode connection credential in the discoveries scan form is a feature that therefore allows to select an existing stored credential and to define it as a set of credentials that Cyberwatch will use to create an agentless connection for every asset discovered by the scan.
