Working with connectors


What are connectors?

The recommended way of adding your known assets to Detectify is by using one or more of our connectors. This allows Detectify to be automatically updated with all assets (such as domains) stored in your cloud provider's DNS service. Moreover, this will continuously be synced ensuring that Detectify will know about all your known assets and thus give it the best conditions for discovering the true unknowns. The syncing will happen on an 8-hour schedule, ensuring that your domains are always up-to-date in Detectify.

Today we support connecting with AWS Route53 (using either IAM roles or credentials), Azure, Google Cloud DNS, Cloudflare, Alibaba Cloud, and Digital Ocean. If you are interested in connecting with any other platform, please reach out to support or your CSM.

Adding a new connector

To add a new connector, simply click Add connector in the upper right corner and pick the connector type you want to use. Next, follow the respective instructions for your connector type listed below:

Listing your connectors

To see all connectors you have on your Detectify team, navigate to the Connectors page found under the Configurations section in the left side menu. Here you'll find a table where each row is a unique connector that is set up. It shows the name you assigned to it, what type it is which shows what provider it is for as well as how the connection has been made (e.g. using roles or credentials).

Removing a connector

From the Connectors page, click the three dots in the Actions column, for the connector you want to remove, then click Delete connector. Your connector should now be removed permanently. Furthermore, it is good practice to clean up any roles created in your hosting platform specifically for this Detectify connector.

Manually syncing a connector

Each connector will run on an 8-hour schedule. However, you can manually choose to sync any domains by clicking the Trigger synchronization button in the Action menu.
