Creating New Edge Services (Administrators Only)

How to request the creation of a new Edge Service in order to scan firewalled and internal assets.

If you need to scan assets that are isolated from the outside world with a firewall in a subnet of your internal infrastructure, you will need an "Edge Service" virtual machine connected to your instance of Warden (see Reaching firewalled & internal assets).

To request the creation of a new Edge Service virtual machine that fits your virtualization environment, go to the "Settings" panel and click on the "Edge Services" link in the "System settings" box.

In the "Manage Edge Services" panel displayed on the right, use the "+" button to request the creation of a new Edge Service.

⚠️ Once you have decided on this Edge Service's network settings, Warden will generate it for you (this process can take a couple of hours) and you will receive download and setup instructions by mail directly.

Once the Edge Service has been created, Warden will wait for a connection from the Edge Service. The Status icon in the "Manage Edge Services" panel will stay orange when it isn't connected.

Once the Edge Service has successfully connected the icon will turn green.
