What are the list of endpoints required for data to be sent from Azure connectors to services ?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Azure Connector
  • Blue XP


When a connector is deployed in Azure, it uses API endpoints in the BlueXP SaaS to orchestrate various tasks. These communication endpoints serve specific functions and can lead to loss of functionality if the endpoints are unreachable. Below is a consolidated list of endpoints contacted for connector day-to-day orchestration , data sent to these endpoints and a description of how the functionality is affected if the endpoint is unreachable. This list does not include endpoints contacted by different data services like CVO, CBS, etc. for their feature orchestration.
