Adding a new asset

When you set up your Detectify account for the first time, you will be prompted to add a domain. You can add more assets, such as root domains, subdomains, or IP addresses, at any point.

You can choose to add a domain or IP manually, import it using a Connector, upload a Zone File, or use DNS Zone Transfer.

Importing Assets Using Connectors

The recommended way of adding your known assets to Detectify is by using one or more of our connectors. Detectify can then automatically update with all assets (such as domains) stored in your cloud provider's DNS service. This will continuously sync, ensuring that Detectify will know about all your known assets and thus provide the best conditions for discovering the true unknowns.

Importing assets using Zon Files or DNS Zone Transfers

Another way to import many domains in bulk is by uploading a Zone File or conducting a DNS Zone Transfer. To learn more about how this is done, read this article.

Adding a Single Domain

The quickest way to get started is by adding domains manually. This can be done through the Add asset flow in the UI or through using this API endpoint. Both root domains and subdomains can be added in this way. The API is great for creating custom flows that sync internal asset inventory with Detectify in both directions, such that known assets are added to Detectify and unknown assets, found by Detectify, are added to your internal inventory.

Adding a Single IP

If you have specific IPs that you want to scan using Application Scanning you can add those manually. Added IPs are always considered Root Assets. These will only work with Application Scanning and not Surface Monitoring.
