Once you have the AWS workloads (EC2 instances) available in the inventory of the Carbon Black Cloud console, you can narrow down the number of the instances present in the Inventory > Public Cloud > AWS page by using the filter facets in the left Filters pane.

Filter Facet Description
Account ID You filter available EC2 instances by the ID of your onboarded AWS account they belong to.
VPC ID Filter the EC2 instances by the ID of the virtual network dedicated to the onboarded AWS account.
ASG Filter the EC2 instances that are part of an Auto Scaling Group (ASG).
AWS Tags You can filter EC2 instances by specifying the tags associated with certain AWS resources.
You filter sensors by status to receive only the state of a sensor's installation or activeness, as well as any admin actions taken on the sensor. The filtered content appears in the Status column and may contain multiple icons to indicate the state of the sensor.
Sensor Status Description
Deregistered Sensors are deregistered or uninstalled; they will persist on the VM Workloads page in this status until removed.
Sensor out of date Sensors must update to the latest version.
Active Sensors checked in within the last 30 days.
Inactive Sensors not checked in within the last 30 days.
Bypass Admin sets the sensors to a Bypass mode and all policy enforcement on the device is disabled, and the sensor cannot send data to the cloud. Another reason for a sensor to enter momentarily into Bypass mode is during the sensor update. For more details, see Bypass Reasons.
Errors Sensors are reporting errors.
Pending install Sensors are not yet installed following an installation request email sent to a user.
Quarantine Admin sets the sensors to Quarantine mode that isolates them from the network to mitigate spread of potentially malicious activity.
Pending update Sensors are not yet updated following an upgrade request.
Sensor Version You filter the installed sensors by version information.
Sensor Group The Unassigned group filter shows only sensors which metadata does not match any group criteria.
The Standard policy filter lists sensors that are:
  • Newly deployed and are assigned the Standard policy by default.
  • Do not meet a group's criteria and are assigned the default Standard policy.
OS You filter sensors based on their devices' operating system, such as Linux and Windows.
Signature Status
The status of each sensor signature version displays in the Sig column.
Signature Status Description
Not Applicable Unidentifiable sensor signature version. This is present for macOS and Linux sensors that are not supported.
Out of date The sensor signature files show as out-of-date (triangle icon) one week after being disabled, until the updates are reenabled.
Up to date The sensor signature files are up-to-date (circle icon) if the signature version installed is released within 7 days of the current date.
Not Available The sensor signature version is not yet reported (square icon) if the local scan is not configured, or if the sensor encountered an error after local scan was configured, such as a connectivity issue
