As the geo-blocking policy is strictly implemented on the corporate firewall, the AWS API calls are limited to specific AWS regions. vRealize Network Insight supports the geo-blocking policy for the AWS environments.

To enable the geo-blocking policy in vRealize Network Insight:


  1. On the Add AWS Data Source page, enter the AWS access and the secret keys. Click Validate.
  2. Select Allow access to specific AWS regions only. Select the AWS regions from the list to enable the automatic collection from the regions. If this option is not selected, then the automatic collection does not happen.
  3. Click Submit.
