Upload a List of Static IP Devices

Add static IP devices to IoT Security by uploading a list of them in a CSV file.
If you have a list of the static IP addresses for your devices, enter them in a CSV (comma-separated values) file and upload it to IoT Security.
There is a limit of 10,000 static IP devices for each uploaded CSV file. If you need to upload more than 10,000, upload multiple CSV files.
  1. Navigate to the User-defined Static IP Devices page (
    Network
    User-defined Static IP Devices
    ) and then click
    Add
    Upload static IP devices
    .
  2. Click the link to download the CSV template.
  3. Fill out the template with static IP device information or create a new file in the same format as the template and fill that out.
    Enter the static IP address of each device you want to upload. Optionally enter its MAC address, vendor, and model in the columns indicated in the template.
    IoT Security uses IP addresses rather than MAC addresses to identify and track static IP devices. The additional user-configured attributes provide extra information when referring to entries on the User-configured Static IP Devices page later. However, only the uploaded IP addresses and (if provided) MAC addresses will ever appear on the Devices and Device Details pages.
  4. Return to the User-defined Static IP Devices page, click
    Add
    Upload static IP devices
    , choose or drag the completed CSV file onto the space in the dialog box, and then
    Upload
    .
    If IoT Security previously detected network activity from one of the uploaded IP addresses, it’s considered a match. The Device Matches counter at the top of the page increases incrementally and “matched” appears in the Result column for this IP address. IoT Security then adds the static IP device to its inventory and displays it on the Devices and Device Details pages. It takes several minutes for IoT Security to check for potential matches with existing data and then update the inventory and static IP device list accordingly.
    If IoT Security has not yet detected network activity for one of the uploaded IP addresses, it’s considered “not found”. In this case, the Devices Not Found counter increases incrementally and a dash appears in the Result column. If IoT Security later discovers network activity for this IP address, it moves it from “not found” to “matched”, adds the static IP device to its inventory, and begins displaying it on the Devices and Device Details pages.
    If a user-defined MAC address is different from a MAC address IoT Security detects on the network, the detected MAC address overrides the user-defined one.
