Configuring the Discovery Schedule

You can configure a discovery schedule to populate ARP, MAC tables, and neighbor information for your devices. The discovery schedule also allows new devices to be automatically added to the inventory.

Configuration Source Management will no longer work after the end of 2020, when browsers discontinue support for Adobe Flash. You can configure credentials, protocols, and schedules in the Configuration Monitor on JSA 7.4.1, patch 1 and later. For more information about this change, see Adobe Flash End of Life and Changes to Configuration Source Management (CSM).
