Liongard Inspector Setup

Step 1: Parent Inspector Setup

Because Vade is a multi-tenant system where a single portal is used to manage many Environments, you will set up a single "Parent" Inspector that will then auto-discover "Child" Inspectors for each Environment.

In Liongard, navigate to Admin > Inspectors > Inspector Types > Navigate to the Vade Inspector > Select Add System.

Fill in the following information:

  • Type of Inspector: Parent

  • Environment: Select your MSP's Environment

  • Friendly Name: Suggested Naming: [MSP Name] Vade Parent

  • Agent: Select On-Demand Agent

  • Inspector Version: Latest (Auto-Update)

  • Instance: https://api.vadesecure.com/

  • Client ID: Enter the Client ID generated in the Inspector Setup Preparation steps

  • Client Secret: Enter the Client Secret generated in the Inspector Setup Preparation steps

  • Scheduling: The Inspector will default to run once a day at the time the Inspector is set up. Here you can adjust the schedule

Select Save. The Inspector will now be triggered to run within the minute.

Step 2: Child Inspector Setup

After the first run of the Parent Inspector, your client Vade organizations will be auto-discovered and will surface on the Discovered Systems page.

Navigate to the Discovered Systems tab on the Inspectors > Vade page

  • Activate your Discovered Systems by ensuring they're mapped to the correct Environment > Select the checkbox to the left of Inspector(s) > Select the Actions drop-down menu > Activate Launchpoints.
  • Users may also Archive Discovered Systems by Selecting the checkbox to the left of the Inspector(s) > Select the Actions drop-down menu > Archive Launchpoints.

Optional: Turn on Flexible Asset/Configuration Auto-Updating

If you would like this Inspector's data to be sent to ConnectWise and/or IT Glue, turn on Flexible Assets/Configurations for this Inspector:

  • ConnectWise: Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Configuration Types > Confirm the "Configuration Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled
  • IT Glue: Admin > Integrations > IT Glue > Flexible Assets > Confirm the "Flexible Asset Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled
