With the introduction of the Clouds feature, you can supply details of your cloud, Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure, and Open-AudIT will use the relevant API to retrieve a list of locations, networks, and instances, then discover each of these instances.
Full cloud auditing with all the details from a regular Open-AudIT audit AND details such as the machine type and size.
Device Matching Rules
To use this feature you must enable the configuration items match_mac (for AWS) and match_hostname (for Azure). This will be done automatically the first time a cloud discovery is executed. For more on Open-AudIT's matching rules see HERE: Matching Devices
How Does it Work?
Once you have your cloud credentials, it is merely a matter of creating a new cloud and running the discovery - or scheduling first/future discoveries. Make sure you also have the credentials required to log on to your cloud machines, and it is all done for you just like a regular discovery.
Clouds are a feature available to Open-AudIT Enterprise licensed customers.
Creating a Clouds Entry
Simply go to menu -> Discover -> Clouds -> Create Clouds.
You will need to supply a cloud name and type and depending on the type selected, supply the relevant credentials. Screenshots are below showing the currently supported types of AWS and Azure.
- Credentials for Amazon AWS used in Cloud Discovery
- Credentials for Microsoft Azure used in Cloud Discovery
The database schema can be found in the application is the user has database::read permission by going to menu: Admin -> Database -> List Tables, then clicking on the details button for the table.
API / Web Access
You can access the collection using the normal Open-AudIT JSON based API. Just like any other collection. Please see The Open-AudIT API documentation for further details.
