  • Maximum adapters to execute asynchronously (required, default: 20) - Define the number of adapters that - as part of the discovery cycle - will be executed to fetch asset information in parallel.

  • Socket read-timeout in seconds (required, default: 5 seconds) - Define the number of seconds to wait for any initial or existing connection response before reporting a connection timeout.

  • Convert all hostnames to uppercase (required, default: false) - Define whether starting from the next data fetch, Axonius will convert all fetched hostnames to uppercase. Otherwise, Axonius leaves fetched hostnames in the format received from each adapter connection.

  • Convert all asset names to uppercase (required, default: false) - Define whether starting from the next data fetch, Axonius will convert all fetched asset names to uppercase. Otherwise, Axonius leaves fetched asset names in the format received from each adapter connection.

  • Set "Short Hostname" as uppercase-hostname with no domain - Some adapters set a field called short hostname on devices, enable this setting to transform the short username to uppercase with a node domain on Axonius.

  • Convert Preferred Hostname to lowercase - Select this option to convert the value of the preferred hostname on Axonius to lowercase.

  • Convert Preferred Hostname to uppercase - Select this option to convert the value of the preferred hostname on Axonius to uppercase.

  • Convert Preferred Hostname (FQDN) to lowercase - Select this option to convert the value of the preferred hostname FQDN to lowercase on Axonius.

  • Set asset name as hostname, if hostname does not exist (required, default: false) - Use this option to set the Host Name field in Axonius with the Asset Name field value, if no hostname was fetched for the asset.

    • If enabled, if no hostname has been fetched for an asset, the Host Name field will be set with the Asset Name field value for that asset.
    • If disabled, if no hostname has been fetched for an asset, the Host Name field will remain empty for that asset.
  • Set hostname as asset name, if asset name does not exist - Select whether to fill the Asset Name field in Axonius with the value of the Host Name field, if no asset name was fetched for the asset.

  • Calculate preferred fields every X hours (required, default: 6) - Specify the number of hours between each recalculation of preferred fields values.

    • The preferred field displays the most authoritative value for a specific piece of information when there are multiple values for a given asset. For example, the Preferred Host Name field will have the most common host name value out of all the Host Name field values for any given device.
    • The preferred fields values are calculated as part of each global discovery cycle and also every number of hours as specified.
  • Calculate "Equals" values list every X hours - Some fields support the equals operators for dynamic lists/values. Set the frequency to refresh this list. The default value is 6 hours.

  • Convert preferred domain to - Select an option for converting the case of the value of the preferred domain in Axonius.

If the word contains a number or a symbol, the first letter after the number or the symbol will be converted to upper case. A number is any number from 0 to infinity, examples of symbols are ! / @ / # / _ / etc.) For instance, hello_world becomes Hello_World, hello3world becomse Hello3World.

    • no conversion - The default value is no conversion, to not make any changes.

  • Remove domain from preferred hostname (required, default: False) - Select whether to include the domain value in the Preferred Host Name field.

    • If enabled, the Preferred Host Name field value will not include the domain value.
    • If disabled, the Preferred Host Name field value will include the domain value.
  • Remove domain from preferred asset name - Select this option to remove the domain value from the Preferred Asset Name field.

  • Remove domain from preferred user - Select this option to remove the domain name from the Preferred User Name field.

  • Preferred OS fields: Allow the following adapters (comma separated list) - Enter a comma separated list of adapters to include in the Preferred_OS calculations. The adapter name is the full Adapter name as it appears as part of the URL when viewing the adapter in the Axonius URL while looking at the adapter in the Axonius console. Once an adapter is in the allow list, the Preferred OS fields will only be calculated using adapters in this list.

  • Preferred OS fields: Ignore the following adapters (comma separated list) - Enter a comma separated list of adapters to exclude from the Preferred_OS. The adapter name is the full Adapter name as it appears as part of the URL when viewing the adapter in the Axonius URL while looking at the adapter in the Axonius console.
