Types of Assets Fetched

This adapter fetches the following types of assets:

  • Devices
  • Users


  1. Wiz URL (required) - The API URL of the Wiz server that Axonius can communicate with via the Required Ports. You can find the API URL required for the connection configuration via the following Wiz URL: https://app.wiz.io/user/profile. The Wiz URL should follow the pattern https://api.{region}.app.wiz.io/.
  2. Wiz Authentication URL (required) - Enter the authentication URL of either the Amazon Cognito or Auth0 (legacy) method of authentication used to enable the connection to Wiz together with the API token.
  • The authentication URL should include the hostname only, omitting any suffixes. For example, enter auth.app.wiz.io without a trailing /auth/token

  • Confirm that the public IP address of your Axonius instance is added to the "Source IP address" configuration within the Wiz application.

  • If you are filtering outbound traffic from your Axonius instance, verify that you have both the Wiz URL and Wiz Authentication URL as allowed destinations.

  1. Client Key and Client Secret (required) - See Obtaining the Client Secret and Client ID for details about how to obtain the Client Key and Client Secret.
  2. Use legacy connection - Select whether to use the legacy connection or the new Report API connection. There are separate permissions for the legacy connection and the new Report connection. Make sure you choose the appropriate permissions.

Axonius recomends you clear this checkbox and use the new non-legacy connection. Please note that the latest features are only supported by the non-legacy connection.

  1. HTTPS Proxy (optional) - Connect the adapter to a proxy instead of directly connecting it to the domain.
  2. Project ID Mapping (Legacy Only) - Enter the Project ID of the account to fetch.
  3. Project UUID - Enter a project UUID to fetch resources only from the project listed.

To learn more about common adapter connection parameters and buttons, see Adding a New Adapter Connection.
