The Bright Cluster Integration plugin is a self-contained docker container managed by UFM and is managed by the REST APIs. It enables integrating data from Bright Cluster Manager (BCM) into UFM, providing a more comprehensive network perspective. This integration improves network-centered Root Cause Analysis (RCA) tasks and enables better scoping of workload failure domains.


The Bright Cluster Integration plugin can be deployed either on the UFM Appliance or on UFM Software. 

For detailed instructions on Bright Cluster Integration plugin deployment, refer to  UFM Bright Cluster Integration Plugin. 


The following authentication types are supported: 

  • basic (/ufmRest) 
  • client (/ufmRestV2) 
  • token (/ufmRestV3) 

GUI Screens 

  1. After the successful deployment of the plugin, a new tab is shown under the UFM settings section for bright configurations management: 

    Fill the below required configurations: 




    Hostname or IP of the BCM server 


    Port of the BCM server, is typically 8081 


    BMC client certificate content that could be located in the BMC server machine under .cm/XXX.pem 

    Certificate key 

    BMC client certificate key that could be located in the BMC server machine under .cm/XXX.key 

    Data retention period
