Azure AD Cloud App Discovery with proxy services

Q. I use a proxy server in my organization. How do I make sure data is captured for Azure AD Cloud App Discovery?

A. By default Azure AD Cloud App Discovery captures data on port 80 and port 443. If a proxy server is used that leverages other ports the agent must be updated. This is done by creating\editing registry value multi-string HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cloud App Discovery\Endpoint\Ports and add the ports to be monitored in addition to all the standard ports which are:

  • 80
  • 8080
  • 8118
  • 8888
  • 81
  • 12080
  • 6999
  • 30606
  • 31595
  • 4080
  • 443
  • 1110
