Is your Rapid7 product subscription provisioned for the United States? Check your region code first!

As of April 12th, 2021, all new customers subscribing to Rapid7 Insight products that elect to store their data in the United States will be provisioned for one of three data centers. Since these data centers have unique endpoints, any firewall rules you configure must correspond to the data center your organization is assigned to. Follow these steps to determine which United States data center your organization is part of:

  1. Go to and sign in with your Insight account email address and password.
  2. Navigate to the Platform Home page.
    • If you are not taken to this page by default, expand the product dropdown in the upper left and click My Account.
  3. Look for the Data Storage Region tag in the upper right corner of the page below your account name. Your United States region tag will show one of the following data centers:
    • United States - 1
    • United States - 2
    • United States - 3

All hostnames listed below are reached via TCP port 443.

How do I know if I was migrated over to Extensible Ingress?

You will automatically be rolled over between April 26, 2023 and June 1, 2023. There is no visible indicator to your migration to Extensile Ingress but you should experience an increase in your Security Console's stability. Extensible Ingress provides improved data synchronization which decreases inconsistencies between the Security Console and the Insight Platform.

What will happen to the old data ingestion system?

The Collector will be deprecated by the end of 2023, and Extensible Ingress will be the only client. There is no required action for users to deprecate the Collector. Further details will be provided in May about the End-of-Life of this service.

How will I know if there is an issue with Extensible Ingress?

Users will be notified in the Notification Center when Extensible Ingress fails to upload files to the S3 bucket to be shown in InsightVM. If you see this notification, notify Rapid7 Support specifying an Ingress Upload Failure.
