Connect to the Auvik Datasource

After you select the Auvik datasource, you are taken to the Edit Auvik screen.

  1. Enter a Name for the datasource.
  2. Enter your Auvik SubdomainApi Key, and Email Address.

    Please note the following requirements:

    • The Subdomain requires the cluster ID. For example, if your Auvik URL is https://mysubdomain.us1.my.auvik.com, then mysubdomain.us1 should be entered into the Subdomain field.
    • The Email Address field is case sensitive.
    • Ensure the user has authorization to all clients. See Auvik's article How do I manage client accounts? for additional information.
    • For information on Auvik API user permissions, please see this Auvik API Support Article.
  3. Before you click Save, be sure to test the connection. If any errors arise with the test, please confirm the Auvik account you used to log in has the correct credentials. Please contact BrightGauge support with any questions. After a successful test, click Save.
