  2. Click Add new Connection.

The connection details are dependent on the connection type:

The number of connections your organization is entitled to monitor in Spotlight Cloud is limited dependent on your Spotlight Cloud subscription. Once the limit has been reached more connections can be added but those connections are initially disabled. See Enable / Disable Connections. To manage your organization’s Spotlight Cloud subscription see Billing & Subscriptions.

The Connection Discovery Wizard can be used to locate resources on the network and add those resources as Spotlight connections.

Connection Tags are a free form organizational tool that may be applied to Spotlight connections. Tag names represent a project, geographic region or other indicator of interest to you and your organization. Multiple tags can be assigned to one connection.
