AWS Asset Discovery Connector and Templates

Hiya… for folks with AWS assets… do you use scan templates that perform asset discovery as well as using the discovery connector? We are doing that but notice that assets in InsightVM are not being removed after they are torn down in AWS.

This sounds like it could potentially be a configuration issue with the discovery connection. One possibility is with the new IAM role you have to create. Since you have to do that and attach a custom policy to the role, there could be a permissions issue that’s causing things to not sync correctly. There’s more info here on the requirements/setup for syncing AWS assets.

If you’ve gone through the setup in that link and it’s still giving you issues, I’d recommend reaching out to support.
