Asset Tagging by Provider

Question asked by Robert Williams on Sep 2, 2018

Is there a way to tag assets by provider?

My business runs a lot of ephemeral instances in AWS and we have Qualys cloud agents on every single asset, workstations and servers, and we would like to clean up after ourselves.

The EC2 connector unfortunately leaves literally an unmanageable mess at the moment (used it one, had to interact with support to remove a massive amount of assets by ID). The connector also never managed to tie the agent and the EC2 asset together, effectively doubling up on the our asset count. So that's out.

 

In the Asset View module and Cloud Agent module I can run the following search to find all AWS assets:

 

Provider: "AWS"

 

However there doesn't appear to be a way to do this with the existing tagging mechanisms.

Anyone out there found a way to tag their assets by the infrastructure provider, or have any other ideas?
