The Adapters page displays the list of the solutions Axonius integrates with, called adapters.
To open the Adapters page, click the icon on the left navigation panel.
The Adapters page shows all the adapters in the system and the Category to which they belong. You can use categories to help you decide which additional adapters you can connect, and to easily find adapters relevant for your use case.
You can toggle between viewing all available adapters and the adapters that have connections configured. Toggle Configured adapters to display only the adapters that have connections configured. Configured adapters shows you the number of adapters that you have already configured, out of all the adapters available. When you choose an adapter category, Configured adapters shows the number of adapters configured in that category out of all the adapters available in that category.
The following information is displayed for each adapter:
Name - the adapter name and logo
Connection Status – the status of the connection, 'Failed', 'Success' or 'Inactive'.
Description - A description of the adapter.
Category - Categories to which the adapter belongs. An adapter can belong to more than one category.
Each record is highlighted in one of the following colors:
- Green - all the adapter connections for this adapter are successfully connected.
- Red - there is a connection error in at least one of the configured adapter connections for this adapter.
- Dark grey - there are only inactive connections for this adapter.
- Light grey - there are no configured connections for this adapter.
The Connection Status column displays the number of configured connections that:
- Were successfully connected ().
- Have connection errors ()
- Are set as inactive connections ()
You can use the search and filters to find adapters you want to connect.
Type in the Search Adapters field to find adapters, as soon as you start typing, the system presents you with possible matches.
Click in the Search Categories field to search for one or more category names. All the adapters in those categories are displayed.
The system also shows you how many adapters in the category you have already configured. Note that Configured adapters relates to the number of adapters in the category you chose and not to the total number of adapters in the system.
Click x next to an adapter category to remove it from the selection or use Clear All to clear all your choices.
