      Access Groups

      An Access Group defines a specific access control configuration by specifying the access relationship between Sources (i.e. Who?) and Destinations (i.e. What?).



      A Connector is an unattended Device with a Connector application installed, which provides connectivity between CloudConnexa and your private Network or private application server.


      DNS Records

      A DNS “A” record is an address record in your DNS server that resolves an IPv4 address with a hostname/domain.



      A Device is a computer, smartphone, or IoT-connected Device with an installed OpenVPN client used to connect to your WPC. Each User can have one or more associated Devices.



      A Host represents a server on your private Network running a Connector to provide connectivity to CloudConnexa.



      A Network is an on-premises or IaaS-hosted range of private IP address subnets that provides access to business-owned resources, secure internet access, Internet Gateway, and more. Each Network requires at least one Connector for Site-to-Site or Point-to-Site WPC connectivity.



      OAuth is an open-standard authorization protocol that provides secure, designated access to applications using authorization tokens, which prove your identity to authenticate with the CloudConnexa API.

      CloudConnexa uses OAuth 2.0.



      A Region is a geographic point-of-presence hosted by CloudConnexa, which consists of a group of high-performance multi-tenant WPC servers. All CloudConnexa regions are interconnected in a Full-Mesh topology to form a high-bandwidth core Network.



      Services are defined as IP Services - access to specific address ranges and protocols.



      This API allows retrieval of WPC client session information, including OS type, version, and device UUID. You can find these connection sessions on the Status page in the Connections table.



      Generally, a User such as an employee, contractor, or other third-party person is authorized to access your WPC. It is possible to create many Users simultaneously.


      User Groups

      A User Group allows for the bulk administration of settings such as role- and department-based access controls, available WPC regions, internet access, types of authentication, and more.
