icon-Alpha-v1.png  This is a new feature that has undergone simple testing and is expected to change, possibly significantly, before going into "beta" or "general release" status. We recommend that you use this feature for testing purposes only, and not in production environments. Service-level response times are not applicable to alpha features.


Table of Contents


A Network Map shows all the security group rules in a network.  Each rule allows a source to connect to the ports of a destination security group, which allows access to servers running in deployments. The left-most column shows the CIDR ranges, or sources. The second column shows the ports open on the network. The destination security group shows the security group that have those ports open. The fourth column shows the deployments with the running servers that are connected to the security groups on the network.


  • 'security_manager' user role privilege


  1. Go to Manage > Networks.
  2. Click on your network and you will be taken to the Info tab which provides information about the network.
  3. Go to the Map tab.



  1. The map above shows a network with a ports 80 and 22 open on the security group that is configured for a server that is running in a NetworksExamples deployment.
    • Source - The CIDR range of the network.
    • Ports - The ports open on the network. Ports can connect to multiple security groups on a network. For example, in the image above, port 80 is used in two security groups on the network, test1 and test2. 
    • Destination Security Groups - The security group of the network with the ports that are open connected to them. 
    • Deployments - The running deployments that are using the security groups of the network.
  2. You can click on the color of a destination security group a network is connected to and all the ports and sources that the servers in the deployment rely on will be highlighted. Additionally, you can click on a port number or color and it will highlight which security groups have those ports open. You can click on the name of a security group and it will take you to that security group in the network.
