Connector pools

This section describes how to create connector pools and assign connectors to the pool.


Connector pools enable you to:

  • Define a cloud or on-premises network, which can consist of multiple subnets, VPCs/VNets, AWS account IDs and Azure subscription IDs, Azure subscription IDs, and Google Cloud project IDs.

  • Assign a connector to the pool, to provide access to that network.

You can have one connector in the pool to serve all the targets in the defined network. For high availability and scalability, you can add multiple connectors to the connector pool.

Ensure you define a connector pool for each cloud network in your cloud environment, and for each network in your on-premises assets.

Connector pools are supported for on-premises targets and the following cloud platforms:

  • AWS

  • Google Cloud

  • Azure

If you need to connect to Window machines on AWS, at least one of the connectors in the pool must be installed on Windows, in order to do the provisioning. We recommend installing at least two connectors on Windows, to ensure availability. All the connectors in the pool will share the load for connection, including those installed on Linux.

View and manage connector pools

From the Connectors > Connector pools page, you can view, and manage connector pools.

The following tables list the details displayed about each connector pool and the available actions.

Connector pool details



Connector pool name

Give the pool a meaningful name.

If you do not assign a connector to a pool, it is assigned to a default pool.


The following are supported:

    • AWS

  • Azure

  • Google Cloud

  • On-premises

No. of connectors

The number of connectors deployed in the pool.


Meaningful description of the connector pool.


Available connector pool actions



Add a pool

Add a new connector pool

Add a connector

Add a new connector

Switch views

You can switch between the following views:

  • Connectors view

  • Connector pools view


Edit an existing connector pool

You can't edit default pools.

While editing a pool, if you remove all the connectors that are installed on Windows from the pool, you'll no longer be able to use that pool to connect to AWS targets via RDP.


Delete an existing connector pool

You can't delete a pool if it has connectors assigned to it.

Assign a connector

Assign a connector to a connector pool

Create a connector pool

Go to the Connectors > Connector pools page and select Add a pool.

Step 1: Select a platform

You can define multiple connector pools for a platform to provide network coverage.

The following platforms are supported:

  • AWS

  • Azure

  • Google Cloud

  • On-premises

Step 2: Define network coverage

Specify multiple subnets, VNets/VPCs, AWS account IDS, Azure subscription IDs, or Google Cloud project IDs that define your network using the appropriate format as detailed in the following tables.

AWS details



List of VPCs


List of subnets


List of AWS accounts

Account ID

Azure details



List of VNets

Type the full VNet ID

For example:


List of subnets


For example:


List of subscriptions

Subscription ID

Google Cloud details



List of VPC networks

Type the full VPC network name

For example:


List of subnets


For example:


List of projects

Project ID

On-premises details




To add an FQDN:

  1. Define each FQDN using a domain or a subdomain.

  2. To include a wildcard, use this format: *.domain or *.subdomain.

  3. For a specific FQDN, use one of the following formats: hostname.domain or hostname.subdomain.

An FQDN configured with a domain also includes its subdomains.

Logical network name

Use to help with quick identification of the connector pool's coverage.

Step 3: Assign a connector

  1. Select the connector you want to assign to your connector pool.

    From the Connector > More menu, select Assign connector.

    You can search for connectors from the connectors view.

  2. From the connector details pane, select Re-assign.

  3. From the Reassign connector dialog, select the connector pool from the drop-down.
