Connecting to Liongard Roar

Are you using Liongard Roar to automate your internal processes (discovery, documentation, change detection, and assessment)? Great! We now have Liongard Roar as a featured integration within our application.  This means you can now create beautiful dashboards and reports to have all of that data in one consolidated location! 

Here's a quick document to help you get set-up.

Step 1 - Log in to your BrightGauge Account

If you haven’t created an account yet, go here to get started.

  • New Accounts

On first login, from the account Overview page, click on the "Add a Datasource" button:

  • Existing Accounts

From the account Overview page (to access click on the BrightGauge logo on the top left hand corner), click on "Add a new Datasource" towards the bottom right of the page (next to the list of your existing datasources):

 

Or, click on the "Data" menu on the the top righthand corner of the screen, and select "Datasources" from the drop down menu:

 

Now, you will find the Liongard Roar datasource under the "Other" category or "All".  If you're interested in other Integrations, simply browse the additional categories that are available for you to select from.

 

 

Step 2 - Configure the Datasource

Whether a new or existing account, clicking on the Liongard Roar datasource logo will bring you to the following page:

Simply fill out the form with the following fields:

  • Name: Choose a name for your datasource - Many of our users will simply title it Liongard Roar
  • Your Liongard Roar URL Name: Not to be confused with the full URL, simply enter the name used to access your Liongard Roar instance.
    • For example, if our URL was BrightGauge.app.liongard.com, we would simply enter 'BrightGauge'.
  • Access Key ID / Access Key Secret
    • You will need to log-in to your Liongard Roar instance to generate both your Acess Key ID and Access Key Secret.  Here is some documentation directly from Liongard Roar expanding on how to do so: Accessing the Roar API

Step 3 - Test the Connection

Make sure to test the connection.  If successful, save the connection.

Dashboards, reports, datasets, and gauges will be added to your account after the datasource is saved. They will start syncing immediately and typically complete syncing after 20-30 minutes.

Your Default Dashboards

  • Liongard Roar: Office 365
  • Liongard Roar: Active Directory

Your Default Reports

  • Liongard Roar: Office 365
  • Liongard Roar: Active Directory

For a list of all default gauges, please visit the "Gauges" section of your account, sort by the Datasource you'd like to see and select for Default.
