Create an Enhanced Discovery service

Create and run an Enhanced Discovery service to perform certificate discoveries inside of your company's network. You can schedule Enahanced Discovery services to run according to a fixed schedule, or run your service immediately and anytime you need to.

Enhanced Discovery takes advantage of Venafi's VSatellites to extend the reach of your TLS Protect Cloud account beyond public networks to discover certificates within your on-premise/private networks and machines.

This discovery service validates discovered certificates automatically.

Before you begin

Make sure you have a healthy VSatellite ready for use with your new discovery service. VSatellite helps you discover certificates on endpoints in your private network using either a schedule or by running your enhanced discovery service manually.

To create an Enhanced Discovery service

  1. Sign in to Venafi Control Plane.
  2. Click Configurations > Discovery Services.

  3. Click New > Enhanced discovery and follow the remaining prompts.

After your new service is created, you can choose to run it immediately.

What's next?

After you perform a discovery, it's a good idea to then assign certificates to applications.
