If the tenant protection infrastructure is configured without Integration Server REST API usage, information about the tenants and their virtual machines must be added to the Integration Server database for the tenant protection reports to be generated.
Registration of an existing tenant and its virtual machines in the Integration Server database consists of the following steps:
The tenant creation procedure is automated by means of the Integration Server REST API.
The actions performed in response to the REST API request depend on the tenant type specified when calling the REST API method. To enter the tenant data into the Integration Server database without creating a tenant protection infrastructure, specify the simple tenant type.
Specify the following information in the REST API request:
As a result, the tenant data is saved in the Integration Server database and the tenant is assigned an identifier.
The virtual machine registration procedure is automated by means of the Integration Server REST API.
In the request to the REST API, specify the identifier (BIOS ID) of each virtual machine and the identifier of the tenant to which these virtual machines belong.
As a result, the data on the tenant virtual machines is saved in the Integration Server database.
The tenant activation procedure is automated by means of the Integration Server REST API.
After activation, the tenant status is preserved in the Integration Server database. You can receive information about the tenant status using the Integration Server REST API or by viewing the list of tenants in the Integration Server Console.
In the case of a simple tenant type, its status (active or inactive) does not affect the protection state of the tenant's virtual machines.
