Working with Networks

Cloud Access Management shows cloud resources that include data unique to networking such as subnets, security groups, and virtual private clouds (VPCs). Virtual machines or instances are also displayed due to their affinity with other network resources.

Viewing a Summary of Networks

You can view details for the following network types:

  • Virtual Private Clouds
  • Subnets
  • Route Tables
  • Security Groups
  • Instances

Select Networks in the left navigation menu to view an overview of the networks that Cloud Access Management has discovered across your cloud sources.

Select a tab at the top to switch views. For example, to view the Security Groups, select the Security Groups tab to see the name, source, region, object type, subnets, instances, VPC, and tags associated with each group.

You can search within the overview list using the search bar below the tabs. Select the download icon to generate and download a CSV with the information for your selected tab.
