Specify a Default Secure Device Connector

Many devices managed by CDO, though not all, connect to CDO through a Secure Device Connector (SDC). In these cases, CDO and the devices it manages do not communicate directly. Meraki MX, Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) when onboarded using a serial number or registration token, and AWS devices do not require an SDC to connect to CDO. 

When you onboard devices that require a Secure Device Connector (SDC) to connect to CDO, they are associated with the default Secure Device Connector (SDC) for your tenant. At the time you onboard a device, you can specify a different SDC than the default. You can specify which SDC is selected by default on Secure Connectors page.

  1. From the account menu, select Secure Connectors.
  2. Select the SDC that you want to be the default.
  3. In the Actions pane, click Make Default.  If you don't see the Make Default action, then the SDC already is the default SDC.
