The entries for the Discovery Service are discovered using a Discovery Service Task. It can take some time for all the data on the systems for the entered IP network to be collected. This can be easily recognised by the blue arrow symbol on the Discovery Service Task and a corresponding message is also shown in the General” display. Once the *Discovery Service Task has been completed, the data will be shown in the Discovery Service module.

Using the Discovery Service entries

The successful execution of a Discovery Service Task is a requirement for the Discovery Service entries. The discovered data is listed in table form in the Discovery Service module and can be correspondingly organised using the Discovery Service System Task filter.

  1. In this section, the Discovery Service entries that were discovered by the Discovery Service Task and selected for the Conversion Wizard are displayed.

Multiple selection of Discovery Service entries

If multiple entries are selected for a Password Reset, a corresponding number of passwords and Password Resets need to be added in the Conversion Wizard. Depending on the entries selected (service, Active Directory user, user account), it is necessary to carry out corresponding assignments in the Conversion Wizard for the passwords.

Every line must be connected to a password in the end. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out an assignment process in the Conversion Wizard for every entry.

For Active Directory users, it is possible to assign an existing password.

Filter settings

A good filter is required for processing the discovered data. A filter that has been adapted for this purpose is available for processing the entries in the Discovery Service module. The options in the filter are described below:
