Synergis Cloud Link

Adding a Synergis Cloud Link unit to your Access Manager activates that unit to make secure connections to a Security Center SaaS edition hosted deployment.

Before you begin

  • Verify that the DNS and other networking settings of the unit are configured.
  • Change the default logon password for the unit.
  • Ensure that the Synergis Cloud Link unit has Internet connectivity.

    Go to https://<SCL IP address>/CloudAgent, and log on to the Synergis SaaS Agent portal with the same username and password you would use to log on to the Synergis™ Appliance Portal. The connectivity status is available on the unit Activation page. If your local network can only reach the Internet through a proxy server, specify the proxy URL and optional username and password on the Proxy page.

  • Ensure that your Config Tool workstation is on the same network as your Synergis Cloud Link unit.

What you should know

All next-generation Synergis Cloud Link units come with Cloud Agent pre-installed. Cloud Agent is a separate software module that establishes a secure connection to the cloud. When the unit is enrolled under a hosted SaaS Access Manager, the cloud connection is activated.


To add a Synergis Cloud Link to a hosted SaaS Access Manager:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Access control task, and click the Roles and units view.
  2. Click Access control unit ().
  3. In the Creating a unit dialog box, click Unit type and select Synergis SaaS.
  4. In the Network endpoint area, enter the hostname or IP address of the unit, then click Validate.
    The system verifies the Synergis Cloud Link and displays the MAC address of the unit.
  5. Enter the admin username and password.
    The default username is admin. You must change the default password to enroll the unit.
  6. Review the Creation summary window, and click Create.
    Config Tool sends the information of the Synergis Cloud Link to the Access Manager, which forwards it to the SaaS gateway. When the unit is connected to the SaaS gateway, a confirmation message is displayed.
  7. Click Close, and then click Refresh ().
    The newly added access control unit appears under the Access Manager that it was assigned to in the Roles and units view. The default entity name is the hostname of the Synergis Cloud Link unit. This unit now only responds to the commands issued by this Access Manager.

To delete a Synergis Cloud Link from a hosted SaaS Access Manager:

  1. In the Roles and units view, select the Synergis Cloud Link unit from the entity tree.
  2. Click Delete ().
  3. In the confirmation dialog box that opens, click Delete.
