Related Resources

Details on Using the InsightCloudSec Related Resources Feature

Related Resources provides a graph-based visual view of resources connected to your Compute and Storage resources. Related Resources is available to InsightCloudSec deployments versioned 23.3.28 or later. You can use this view to examine threats and uncover deep insights into your cloud footprints. We will continue to update and expand features for this capability, focusing on delivering an experience that provides a full Attack Path Analysis.

For questions or issues reach out to your CSM or to support through the Customer Support Portal.


Related Resources can be found by opening the resource properties panel and navigating to the "Related Resources" tab for Compute and Storage resources.

Feature Details

Once the Related Resources modal is open, a graph of all the resources connected to the selected resource will appear. Displaying related resources this way provides a more holistic view of the resources' surrounding environment, giving you the context needed to effectively remediate vulnerabilities. Each resource will appear with an icon, type, and name.

Example Visualization

Example Visualization

Exploration options:

  • Toggle the Orientation to view the graph left-right or top-down.
  • Click "Print" to print the graph as it is currently laid out as an image.
  • Use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out of the graph
  • Click and drag to move around the graph
  • Hover over a node to highlight the relationships
  • Double-click a node to extend additional resources from the selected node
  • Right-click a node to open the contextual menu:
    • "Make Root Node" -- open the graph with the selected node as the focus or root node
    • "Show Related Resources" -- extend additional resources from the selected node (performs the same action as double-click)
    • "Quick Look" -- opens a moveable window containing properties about the resource; click "See All Details" to open the full list of properties for the resource
    • "See All Details" -- opens the full list of properties for the resource


Resources in a Group

Sometimes resources will be grouped together for a better viewing experience. Double-clicking a resource that is in a group (for example: "3 in Group") opens a window containing a list of all resources in the same group. From here, resources can be removed from the group. (This is purely a cosmetic change; it will not affect the resource's actual relationships.)
