Kubernetes Discovery for AWS, Google Cloud, and MS Azure

Kubernetes Discovery is available as an option for Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure cloud autodiscovery jobs. Scroll down the Add Cloud Discovery page to select the Kubernetes Discovery option.

You can also select an Action for Resources not found: option to choose how to handle Kubernetes Cluster children resources not found in subsequent discovery.

Your cloud discovery job will now also include discovery of Kubernetes resources on the target cloud platform.

Standalone Kubernetes Discovery

To add a Standalone Kubernetes discovery job, you’ll need either a Bearer Token or Basic Credentials. You’ll also need to enter a URL and select an Action for Resources not found.

Optionally, you can also choose a Vendor and a VRF Group. Please note that all Vendors and VRF Groups are user-defined.

View Discovered Kubernetes Resources

Discovered Kubernetes resources appear in the Resources list page. Select Resources > All Resources from the main menu to display the list page. Use the Vendor Resource Type drop-down to choose the Kubernetes resources you want to see.

Click on a Resource Name to view that resource.

Click on the available links to see details about those resources.

Click the Edit button at the top right to edit resource information. Editing is generally limited to adding or editing Notes or Tags or changing the In Service status or Level.
