Extend Aperture SaaS Visibility to Cortex Data Lake

Connect the Aperture service to retrieve logs from your Cortex Data Lake to compile a combined view of unsanctioned and sanctioned SaaS application usage.
For an inventory of SaaS application usage and patterns on your network, and to identify shadow IT, you need to know about data residing within enterprise-enabled SaaS applications, and network traffic generated by users using managed and unmanaged devices within your organization.
If you are using next-generation firewalls or GlobalProtect Cloud Service as an Internet gateway to secure on-premise or remote users and are storing traffic logs and other logs to the Cortex Data Lake, you need to connect Aperture to the Cortex Data Lake to extend SaaS visibility. All you need is the serial number for your Cortex Data Lake instance.
  1. Log in to Customer Service Portal, select AssetsCloud Services to locate your Cortex Data Lake (Logging Service) serial number.
  2. Log in to Aperture, select Settings SaaS Visibility, and enter the serial number.
    You must have Aperture Admin or Super Admin privileges to add SaaS Visibility on Aperture.
  3. Begin viewing SaaS application usage on Aperture.
