    I am sorry it is not clear what you are asking for.
    UIM uses SNMP, WMI and SSH to connect to devices for discovery and populate information into the UIM database.

    Please see the discovery information in the guides:

    Most of the discovery is handled by the Discovery_server probe.
    see the discovery_server correlation and troubleshooting sections

    if after reviewing these you have further detailed questions please provide more information on what you are looking for with details and examples

    Not finding credential less in the docs, please provide the link.

    Based on my understanding the USM Discovery Wizard needs credentials to login and obtain system information.

    Discovery can also be achieved by deploying a robot to a system, or even remotely monitoring the device. Each will provide its own view of the system.

    An additional factor is there is a large variety of devices, some very different from others. So items applicable to one will not be applicable to others, for example a VM UUID.

    In regards to the initial request it is a good example of ambiguity enhanced by the use of terms uncommon to UIM/DX IM. If examples, details, what the goal or need is, can be provided it will help us help you. This is something the post 'Why Is My Question Unanswered???
