Reset asset and identity collections immediately in

All the asset and identity source files that are turned on in the Asset and Identity Management page get merged into the following default collections in the collections.conf file: assets_by_str, assets_by_cidr, or identities_expanded.

If your collections get into an undesirable state, you can reset your collections at any time, rather than waiting for the automated process to clear out the KV store collection. It's similar to clearing cache manually.


Perform the following prerequisite tasks before starting on these settings:

  1. Collect and extract asset and identity data in .
  2. Format the asset or identity list as a lookup in .
  3. Configure a new asset or identity list in .

Reset your collections immediately

The Reset Collections button is globally available regardless if you are configuring in a particular tab.

  1. From the menu bar, select Configure > Data Enrichment > Asset and Identity Management.
  2. Click Reset Collections.

When the identity manager runs again in 5 minutes, it rebuilds the collections based on which source files are turned on in the Asset Lookup Configuration or the Identity Lookup Configuration.
