Cloud Perimeter Scan - Global Configuration

The Connector application provides an automated way to launch the cloud perimeter scans on the publicly exposed cloud assets based on the configuration defined in the Connector.

You can define a global perimeter scan configuration that is used by connectors to run the perimeter scan.

You can enable a cloud perimeter scan while creating a connector and define a custom scan configuration for scheduling the perimeter scan only for the connector that you are creating. 

Similarly, you can enable a cloud perimeter scan for AWS organization connector and define a custom scan configuration for scheduling the perimeter scan. The custom scan configuration is applied to all the member connectors during the cloud perimeter scan.

If you do not define the custom scan configuration, the global scan configuration is used for launching the perimeter scans.
