A very useful feature of Tufin SecureChange is the possibility to have an automatic target selection in Access Request workflows. Quite often, the first step of an Access Request ticket doesn't require the requester to fill in the necessary targets. Just Source and Destination as well as Service are needed for opening a ticket. In the next step, the corresponding targets are often calculated automatically for further use, e.g. by the Designer or Verifier. These tools rely on the results of the values configured in "Targets" - independently if they are filled in manually or by Automatic Target selection.
The automatic selection works perfectly for Access Requests with one Source and one Destination.
AR with one Source and one Destination - working path
For the first request below a target can be found because the path can be found in the SecureTrack Topology. This behavior is as expected.
AR with one Source and one Destination - not working path
The second request is not in SecureTrack Topology, therefore neither a path nor a target can be found. This behavior is also as expected.
AR with a "mixed condition" for Source and Destination
If now both cases are mixed within one Access Request, Tufin only finds the targets of the first example, not pointing out that for the second option, no Targets have been found. Only the found Targets are filled into the field - without any hint that not all connections have been found within SecureTrack Topology.
