Microsoft Azure connector
This is a cloud connector.
The Azure connector gathers data about devices from Microsoft Azure.
In order to connect Microsoft Azure to the Neurons Platform, you first need to create an application in Azure. Access to Azure resources is controlled by roles instead of the permissions associated with app registration. The app you create must have read permissions for a resource group associated with the Azure product you are connecting to. To assign permissions, find the resource group in the Azure portal and assign a Reader role to the app you created. For information on role assignments, see Assign Azure roles using the Azure portal in the Azure documentation.
For information about what data is imported and how it is mapped, see Mapping (below).
An Azure connector has the following options:
- Connector name: A name for the connector.
- Connector server name: For cloud connectors, this server is the Cloud option on the Connector Servers page. If you already added the connector to the Cloud option, this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, select Cloud from the list.
- Directory (tenant) ID: The ID of the tenant you created in Azure.
- Application (client) ID: The ID of the application you created in Azure.
- Subscription ID: The ID of the subscription you created in Azure.
- Client secret: The client secret associated with the application you created in Azure.
- Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
- Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
- Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
- Action Credentials: The credentials Ivanti Neurons uses to perform actions and queries on device or people records. The types of available actions and queries will depend on your specific work environment.
For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
