You will need to have data in the JupiterOne platform to take advantage of its capabilities. The more data, the more powerful these capabilities become.
There are over a dozen managed integrations available out-of-the-box for turnkey configuration. More are added regularly.
Each integration may have a slightly different mechanism for authentication and configuration, as required by the provider. For example, the AWS integration uses an IAM Role and Assume Role Trust policies for access. Other integrations may use an API key/token, OAuth, or Basic Auth.
This recording below shows an example of how to configure an AWS integration.
For details on other integrations, please see their corresponding documentation page under the Managed Integrations section.
Additionally, you can upload data outside of these managed integrations using the JupiterOne API Client or CLI. This allows you to centrally track, monitor and visualize any of your data such as on-premise systems and security / compliance artifacts.
