Logs/Background Jobs

Details on the Logs and Background Jobs tabs of System Administration in InsightCloudSec

The page provides details on two elements available from the System Administration section of InsightCloudSec (accessible from the gear icon in the top right): Logs and Background Jobs.


The Logs page displays a running log of activity occurring within InsightCloudSec. You can search through the list as well as filter it by resource type and/or cloud account.

  • Click "Download" to download the current active log as a compressed text file
  • Click "Clear Logs" to remove the entire active log
  • Click the magnifying glass icon next to a log entry to display detailed log information

Background Jobs

The Background Jobs page displays the jobs that InsightCloudSec uses to perform operations in the background, including harvesting resource information that is not account-specific, e.g., Managed Policies and Instance Flavors, performing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) scanning jobs, etc. Note: Background jobs are different than harvesting jobs. All background jobs are on a schedule; you can see the next time the job will run in the Next Scheduled Run column. You can also manually run a background job by clicking on the "Enqueue Now" button.



Value Names (DivvyCloud vs. InsightCloudSec)

Some examples, screen captures, and components use our former product name (DivvyCloud vs. InsightCloudSec). Updates to the naming of these components will be communicated when changes are made, but note that the name difference does not affect functionality within the product.

There are a couple InsightCloudSec environment variables that can be adjusted for your needs. If you have questions or concerns reach out to us through the Customer Support Portal.

  • To disable background jobs, use DISABLED_PROCESSOR_NAMES with a list of comma separated background job names, e.g., DIVVY_DISABLED_PROCESSORS=IAMDispatcher,IAMDifferentialBuild
  • To change the harvest time for a given background job, use DIVVY_SCHEDULE_<job-name>=HH:MM, e.g., DIVVY_SCHEDULE_IAMDifferentialBuild=01:00
