Auto-Discovery allows you to onboard customers in Liongard faster! When some of our Inspectors run, Liongard can see the potential for another Inspector. Then, Liongard will (in most cases) completely set up that potential Inspector, and Liongard will leave it in a discovered state for you to activate.
There are two kinds of Auto-Discovery in Liongard:
Auto-Discovery can help your team:
Auto Discovery is when, after Inspector runs, Liongard can see the potential for other Inspectors.
|This...||Auto-Discovers...||Which Auto-Discovers this...|
|ConnectWise Manage Inspector||Internet Domains/DNS Inspector||TLS/SSL Certificate Inspector|
Here are all of the examples of Auto-Discovery in Liongard:
- = the Auto-Discovered Inspector is almost completely set up, but it will require pre-work steps in order to successfully complete an inspection.
Note: In Liongard, you can see which Inspectors have Auto-Discovery capabilities by navigating to Admin > Inspectors > Discovers column.
If the Discovers Column contains a different Inspector than the Inspector in the Inspector column, then that Inspector has Auto-Discovery capabilities. In the example below, you can see that Active Directory and Autotask have Auto-Discovery capabilities.
Parent/Child Type Inspectors is a kind of Auto-Discovery that applies to multi-tenant systems. To set these Inspectors up, you will need to create one "Parent" Inspector. After this Inspector runs, it will Auto-Discover all of the tenants within the multi-tenant system as "Child" Inspectors.
Many Parent Inspectors only exist to discover their Child Inspectors. In these cases, the Parent Inspector will have a limited set of Data Views. The Child Inspectors will show the full set of Data Views with all the applicable inspection information.

Note: In Liongard, you can see which Inspectors are Parent/Child Type by navigating to Admin > Inspectors > Discovers column.
If the Discovers column contains an Inspector that is the same as the Inspector in the Inspector Column, then the Inspector is a Parent/Child Type Inspector.
When you deploy an On-Premises Agent on a Domain Controller, auto-discovery is involved. The Windows Server that that Agent is deployed on will appear in your list of Total Discovered Systems on the Liongard Dashboard. Once that Windows Server Inspector has been activated, it will auto-discover the local Active Directory Inspector. Once the Active Directory Inspector has been activated, it will auto-discover all other Windows Servers, Hyper-V Servers, SQL Servers, and a Network Discovery Inspector.
Keep in mind that Windows Servers are Endpoint Inspectors. Endpoint Inspectors are billed per unit according to your agreement with Liongard. Usage beyond the contracted amount will be charged on your monthly invoices.
To view all of Discovered Systems, users can click into the Total Discovered Systems button, or users can navigate to Admin > Discoveries
Here users can activate or archive Discovered Systems as well as view information on the Discovered System, including which System Inspector it was discovered by.
You may onboard customers in Liongard in mass in two situations:
- Initially onboarding your customers in Liongard
- Onboarding acquired customers to Liongard
In both of these situations, Auto-Discovery can be leveraged to make these mass onboarding processes more efficient.

Once a System Inspector is auto-discovered, you have the ability to "Activate or Archive" the Inspector.
- Activate: Once a System Inspector is activated, it will be triggered to run within the minute.
- Archive: You have the option to archive any auto-discovered System Inspectors you do not wish to have Liongard inspect.
When an Inspector is archived, you can find it in the Admin > Inspectors > System Type > Archived Inspectors tab. If you wish to activate a System Inspector that has been archived, you must unarchive the System. Then, it will populate in the Discovered Systems tab. From there, you can activate the Inspector, and it will be triggered to run within the minute.
Auto-Discovery can be leveraged to make Onboarding a new customer start to finish more efficient.
