Permissions and ports for Harness connections

The permissions and ports listed in this topic are for all of the integrations Harness supports across its Harness FirstGen and Harness NextGen product suites.

The following table lists the permissions and ports needed for the Harness Delegate to access Connectors such as artifact servers, cloud providers, verification, and security providers. You configure these settings in the Harness Manager.

  • Artifact servers: The Delegate pulls artifacts and metadata from artifact servers using the account and ports required by the artifact server.
  • Deployments: Most Harness deployments to Virtual Machines (for example, AWS, GCP, Azure, Datacenter) are performed using SSH over port 22. The VPC firewall setting might also require additional open ports for administration, such as HTTP 443.
  • Verifications: The Delegate makes API calls to verification providers using the access keys required by the providers.
  • Security: For security, such as SAML and LDAP, the Delegate uses the account and ports required by the provider, such as an Active Directory domain controller running in an Azure or AWS VPC.

In general, if you are already connecting to your artifact servers, cloud, verification, and security providers from within your network or VPC, and you install the Harness Delegate inside that network or VPC, there is little network or VPC configuration needed. You simply need to specify accounts and ports when configuring Harness to use the providers.
