Rapid7 InsightVM (on-premises)

Rapid7 InsightVM provides visibility and risk prioritization for vulnerabilities found in local, remote, cloud, containerized, and virtual infrastructure. This connector is for the on-premises version of Rapid7 InsightVM, that uses version 3 of the InsightVM API.


To use the Rapid7 Connector in Lucidum:

  1. Before configuring the Rapid7 connector in Lucidum, you must create a read-only account in Rapid7 that allows Lucidum to ingest information from Rapid7.

  2. You can then configure the Rapid7 connector in Lucidum and start ingesting data from Rapid7.

NOTE: Lucidum currently supports Rapid7 API Version 3, because Version 3 provides more detailed information than Version 4.
