Abstract

Cortex XDR enables you to view specific cloud assets from a designated cloud assets category in the Specific Cloud Asset pages.

Note

Ingesting and Viewing Cloud Inventory Assets requires a Cortex XDR Pro per GB license.

The Specific Cloud Assets pages enable you to view specific cloud assets from a designated cloud assets category from all the assets you configured to collect from Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services using the Cloud Inventory data collector. These asset cloud categories are based on a combination of asset types and subtypes. Each specific table contains the common columns that are listed in the All Cloud Assets table and some additional specific columns that are relevant for this type of cloud asset.

To view the Specific Cloud Assets pages, select AssetsCloud InventorySpecific Cloud Assets, and select a specific cloud asset category.

By default, the Specific Cloud Assets pages display the cloud assets according to the most recent time that the data was updated. To search for specific assets, use the filters above the results table to narrow the results. You can export the tables and respective asset views to a tab-separated values (TSV) file. From the Specific Cloud Assets page, you can also manage the asset's output using the right-click pivot menu. For more information, see Manage Your Cloud Inventory Assets.

When any row in the table is selected, a side panel on the right with greater details is displayed, where you can view additional data divided by sections, such as Asset Metadata and Asset Editors. The Asset Editors section also provides a link to open a predefined query in XQL Search on the cloud_audit_log dataset to view the edit operations by the identity selected for this asset in the last 7 days.
