In CMPv1, Discovered VMs are stored in the [cmdb_ci_azure_vm] table, with the discovery process being enabled by the legacy plugin Microsoft Azure.
During Discovery, the Identification and Reconciliation Engine (IRE) is not used. Instead, the procedure checks on the [normalizedobject_db_mapping] table fields with the following search criteria:
- Resource Type = VM
- Target Table = Azure Virtual Machine Instance
- "Used to correlate" = true
The out of box field used for identification is [correlation_id], which is mapped from "Resource ID" from Azure.
