Excluded Resources

You have the ability to exclude specific resources from any calculations done in Migrate. There are 4 categories of resources that you can exclude: networks, compute instances, applications, and custom groups.

For example, you might want to exclude networks that are internal-only, or applications that are going to stay on-premises.

Networks Exclusions

You can exclude networks from calculations in Migrate and view the excluded networks in an Exclusions List.

To view excluded networks, navigate to the Integrations page and click Exclusion Lists, To exclude networks after creating a project in Migrate, click Add Row.

You can add a network by entering any combination of the following:

  • One or more comma-separated IP addresses

  • A hyphenated range of IP addresses in the format <IPaddress-IPaddress>

Examples:

IP Addresses

Result

203.0.113.0, 203.0.113.213

Excludes both addresses listed

203.0.113.213–203.0.113.255

Excludes all addresses beginning at 203.0.113.213 and ending at 203.0.113.255

203.0.113.0, 203.0.113.0–203.0.113.215

Excludes the first address and all addresses from 203.0.113.0 up to and including 203.0.113.215

You can remove a single resource from the exclusion list by clicking the 'x' at the end of the row. The icon changes to a curved "undo" arrow. The selected item will be included in calculations the next time they are initiated.

Other Resource Exclusions

Applications, compute instances, and custom groups can be added to the Exclusions List by right-clicking on a resource on the Inventory page and selecting Exclude from Calculation. The excluded resource will display an "excluded" badge and will appear on the Custom Groups tab in Exclusion Lists.
