Cloud Status Information

Each Cloud Overview page includes high-level status information including:

  • Cloud Type (icon)
  • Cloud Name
  • Harvesting status (active/inactive)
  • Harvesting permissions (has all permissions/permissions missing). Note: If harvesting is missing specific permissions an active link provides access to missing permissions details
  • For Cloud accounts that contain missing permissions, clicking on the active text opens a module with details about each individual missing permission/ associated resource.
  • Account Details
    • Account Number associated with the selected Cloud Account
    • Payer ID & email associated with the Cloud Account (AWS-Only)

Missing Permissions

Customers using AWS, GCP, or Microsoft Azure get visibility on missing permissions for their installation. You can identify what permissions are missing and what the impact of those missing permissions has on visibility into that cloud account. Permission issues prevent harvesting and data retrieval of your cloud resources.

  • This data refreshes every two hours. If you've recently made changes to your cloud permissions for this account, please check back in two hours.
  • Note: For AWS accounts there may be Service Control Policies that disable some resources.

For each of the featured subsection users can view at-a-glance information about a handful of individual resources including:

Harvest Info

The "Harvest Info" tab from the overview page of the individual cloud provides details (e.g., resource type, region, etc.) from the last known harvest. This is useful in understanding when a particular resource was last harvested, or when a Bot action was last run. Review Managing Your Clouds for more information.

APIs (GCP-Only)

For GCP-based Cloud accounts, an additional tab is available that displays all the GCP APIs that InsightCloudSec uses with details on their status (enabled or disabled). Check out the content we have on Projects for (GCP) for additional details on configuration.




Auto-Enabling APIs

You can activate API Auto-Enablement if you want InsightCloudSec to automatically enable and harvest from every API, but this requires you to manually enable the Service Usage API.

In general, we do not recommended auto-enabling; InsightCloudSec recommends only enabling APIs that you use for performance, cost, and security benefits.
