Adding a NIOS Source Configuration

To add NIOS as a source configuration for the Data Connector traffic flows in Cloud Services Portal, complete the following:

  1. Log in to the Cloud Services Portal.
  2. Click Manage -> Data Connector.
  3. Select the Source Configuration tab, and then click Create.
  4. From the Create drop-down list select NIOS.
  5. In the Create NIOS Source Configuration wizard, complete the following:
    • Name: Enter the name of the source. Select a name that best describes the source, so that you can distinguish this from other sources.
    • Description: Enter the description of the source. The field length is 256 characters.
    • State: Use the slider to enable or disable the source configuration. Note that the source configuration is in effect only when you enable it. If you disable the source configuration, you will not be able to select this source when you create a traffic flow.
    • Expand the Source Data Type section and select the source data you want the Data Connector to collect from this source.
    • In the CREDENTIALS FOR GRID MASTER CONFIGURATION section, complete the following:
      • FQDN/IP: Enter the FQDN or the IP address of the source.
      • User Name: Enter the user name for the source credentials. The Data Connector uses this entry to access the source appliance.
      • Password: Enter the password for the source credentials. The Data Connector uses this entry to access the source appliance.
      • Insecure Mode: This is selected by default if you do not upload a CA certificate. When this checkbox is selected, Data Connector uses basic authentication using the user name and password you entered. However, if you do not upload a CA certificate, your credentials will not be encrypted. HTTPS will be used. Data will be encrypted, but the certificate will not be validated.
      • CA Certificate: Click Select file to upload the CA-signed certificate for the NIOS appliance. When you upload a valid CA certificate, Data Connector uses the basic authentication using the credentials, plus the certificate you uploaded to secure the connection.
    • In the CREDENTIALS FOR DNS QUERY LOGS TRANSFER section, complete the following:
      • User Name: Enter the user name used to access the SCP server. The Data Connector uses SCP to communicate with the source.
