OpenStack discoveries

Configure your API access

Cyberwatch requires API credentials to connect to your OpenStack instance. They consist in a user name and a password, along with an OpenStack API v3 endpoint.

You may configure your credentials from “Stored credentials” in the lateral menu, then clicking Add. In the form, select type OpenStack and fill in your credentials.

Create the discovery

  1. From Discoveries, click Add. Click OpenStack in the Cloud infrastructure category.
  2. Enter the name of the scan.
  3. Select optional groups that will be affected to the scan.
  4. Choose the source of the scan (the Cyberwatch machine that will run the operation).
  5. Using the Credentials selector, pick the OpenStack account registered in previous steps.
  6. Input the name of the AWS region to list instances from.
  7. Select the discovery mode in order to choose which information will be used to list the discovered assets.
  8. Choose a recurrence. The default value 0 days means the scan will be launched only once.
