Editing and Deleting a Connector

You can edit or delete a connector from the Connector page.

Editing a Connector

Procedure

To edit a connector:

  1. Select Administration > Policy Enforcer > Connectors.

    The Connectors page appears.

  2. Select the connector you want to edit , and then click the pencil icon.

    The Edit Connector page appears displaying the same options that were used to create a new connector. Note that you cannot edit the Name and IP Address/URL fields.

    For the AWS connector, when you select a new region, you must enter the configuration parameters for the VPCs in that region. This enables you to maintain different vSRX authentication keys across different regions.

    For AWS and Contrail connectors, you can enable or disable the threat remediation and next generation firewall features. If you disable the next generation firewall feature from a project or VPC, that particular project or VPC connector instance will be deleted. The VPCs are deleted from the corresponding regions.

    A warning message is shown if you edit the existing generated metadata name. If you edit the existing metadata name, duplicate metadata objects are created that are associated to a firewall policy. To edit the metadata name, select Configure > Shared Objects > Object Metadata and edit the required metadata name. Also if the firewall policies are associated with this metadata, select Configure > Firewall Policy > Policies and edit the corresponding metadata expression.

    To delete the mapping of the tag name with the generated metadata, disable the Map option for the corresponding project or VPC. A warning message is shown that there could be a firewall policy associated with this metadata. Select Configure > Firewall Policy > Policies and edit the corresponding metadata expression. The mapping is deleted at the end of the edit workflow. You can also enable the Import option for the tags that were not mapped to the generated metadata while creating the connector.

  3. Modify the required field values and click Save to save your changes.

If you discover a new connector instance, you can enable the threat remediation or next generation firewall option. A new site is created when you enable one of these options. You must add these new sites to a realm to perform the threat remediation. At the end of the edit connector workflow, a reminder message is shown to add the sites to a realm.
