Topics Discussed

VM Detail, IP Groups and Service Groups, Security Dashboard, Security Incident, Log Management and FIM

VM Detail UPDATE


This topic only applies to Armor Anywhere users.

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), a newly created virtual machine will continue to be in a Pending status until every feature of the virtual machine has been fully provisioned. As a result, a user cannot perform certain actions on the virtual machine until these features have been provisioned.

Previously, a newly created virtual machine would be in a Powered on status, even if there were pending features to be provisioned. As a result, a user could update the virtual machine, which would cause some compatibility issues with the pending features.

This update will help avoid compatibility issues between the virtual machine and the additional features that have not been fully provisioned.


IP Groups and Service Groups UPDATE


In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), In the Firewall screen, you can now use special characters to create a new IP Group or Service Group.

Specifically, you can use the following special characters to name a group:
