Navigating IT Portal
Cloudockit IT Portal has two main sections
- Applications: contains an overview of all the applications detected by Cloudockit
- Resources: contains all the resources automatically discovered by Cloudockit
The applications are automatically extracted when Cloudockit scans your AWS, Azure or Google Cloud environment.
The first two charts in the Application section allow you to see which documentation is missing from your applications.
The graph to the right, Information Status by application, shows you how many applications are missing or have completed documentation.
- Set: Number of applications that have the documentation
- Not Applicable: Number of applications where you set the documentation as not applicable
- Not Set: Number of applications that is missing documentation
For example, you can see that you have 4 applications with a disaster recovery plan (DRP) that are completed, 3 applications where you consider that the DRP is not applicable (for an external SaaS for example), and 8 Applications where DRP is completed.
To fill those properties, scroll down to the List of Applications below and click on an application name. It will bring you to the Application Detail page.
From there you can create pages to store your DRP, any other documentation, or add a link to an existing document.
You will also be able to see the complete diagram of the Application.
Cloudockit IT Portal also lets you create your own applications manually.
From the resource section, you will see all the resources that Cloudockit has discovered.
You can see the details of each resource by clicking on a resource name on the bottom graph.
From the details page, you will be able to see the detailed documentation of the resource and be able to enter your own content such as a description, notes, and related documents or tasks.
On the Resource Details page, below the documentation and diagrams sections, you will be able to see a graph of the links to other resources.
Those links are automatically discovered by Cloudockit. IT Portal also enables you to add your own links.
You can also add tags, applications, and resources without impacting your cloud infrastructure.
If you have resources that were not scanned by Cloudockit, you can create your own resources directly in Cloudockit IT Portal. Approximately 80% of your valuable information will be automatically detected by Cloudockit.
