During the Configure cloud environment operation, the Synchronize with Cloud rule is created automatically. This rule allows you to automatically move instances detected in each poll, from the Unassigned devices group to the Managed devices\Cloud group, to make these instances available for centralized management. By default, the rule is active after it is created. You can disable, modify, or enforce the rule at any time.

To edit the properties of the Synchronize with Cloud rule and/or enforce the rule:

  1. In the console tree, right-click the name of the Device discovery node.
  2. In the context menu, select Properties.
  3. In the Properties window that opens, in the Sections pane, select Move devices.
  4. In the list of device moving rules in the workspace, select Synchronize with Cloud and then click the Properties button in the lower part of the window.

    The rule properties window opens.

  5. If necessary, specify the following settings in the Cloud segments settings group:
    • Device is in cloud segment
      • Include child objects
      • Move devices from nested objects to corresponding subgroups
        • Create subgroups corresponding to containers of newly detected devices
        • Delete subgroups for which no match is found in the cloud segments

        If you enabled the Synchronize with Cloud option when running the Configure cloud environment, the Synchronize with Cloud rule is created with the Create subgroups corresponding to containers of newly detected devices and Delete subgroups for which no match is found in the cloud segments check boxes selected.

        If you did not enable Synchronize with Cloud option, the Synchronize with Cloud rule is created with these options disabled (cleared). If your work with Kaspersky Security Center requires that the structure of subgroups in the Managed devices\Cloud subgroup matches the structure of cloud segments, enable the Create subgroups corresponding to containers of newly detected devices and Delete subgroups for which no match is found in the cloud segments options in the rule properties, and then enforce the rule.

  6. In the Device discovered using API drop-down list, select one of the following values:
    • AWS. The device is discovered by using the AWS API, that is, the device is definitely in the AWS cloud environment.
    • Azure. The device is discovered by using the Azure API, that is, the device is definitely in the Azure cloud environment.
    • Google Cloud. The device is discovered by using the Google API, that is, the device is definitely in the Google Cloud environment.
    • No. The device cannot be detected by using the AWS, Azure, or Google API, that is, it is either outside the cloud environment or it is in the cloud environment but it cannot be detected by using an API.
  7. No value. This condition does not apply. If necessary, set up other rule properties in other sections.
  8. If necessary, enforce the rule by clicking the Force button in the lower part of the window.

    The Rule execution wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the wizard. When the wizard finishes, the rule will be run and the structure of subgroups in the Managed devices\Cloud subgroup will match the structure of your cloud segments.

  9. Click the OK button.

The properties are set up and saved.

To disable the Synchronize with Cloud rule:

  1. In the console tree, right-click the name of the Device discovery node.
  2. In the context menu, select Properties.
  3. In the Properties window that opens, in the Sections pane, select Move devices.
  4. In the list of device moving rules in the workspace, disable (clear) the Synchronize with Cloud option and click OK.

The rule is disabled and will no longer be applied.
