UD scanner external save path to Azure storage

Hi Experts,

I'm considering a manual scanner solution for our Azure public cloud environment whereby we configure a manual scanner that runs on a schedule.  The original thought was to create a batch file that copies the scan file to Azure storage where it can be copied over to the incoming directory of one of our probes to be consumed.

A more elegant solution, in my opinion, would be to configure an external save path directly to the Azure storage.  I know that you can reach the storage site via https but it requires additional parameters including the destination key.  Has anyone attempted to use the external save path option to copy to Azure storage?  If so, how did it go?

Re: UD scanner external save path to Azure storage

Hi Rose,


in the DataFlowManagement.pdf there are a lot of options explained. You can use Store and Forward functionaliy, you can upload the scanner result to the https of the probe, you can install azure probe and connect it to the UCMDB server. 

It all depends on your requirements and security considerations.
