Why is information about Azure VMs missing

vScope uses Microsoft’s API to retrieve information about the Azure VM’s to vScope. The way the API works, it’s only possible to retrieve a certain kind of information about the VM if it was created using an imageReference. This means that VM’s created from scratch in Azure won’t have information available in the API, so there’s nothing for vScope to retrieve.

For more information about your Azure VM’s in vScope, it’s always possible to use the discovery probes WMI and SSH to inventory OS information about your virtual machines.
