This topic describes subscriptions in Live.
Threats and the corporate landscape change over time. RSA periodically reviews existing content to determine whether it needs to be updated based upon current campaigns, or has become irrelevant due to changes in technology or attack techniques and tools.
You can discover new content by using the What’s New dashlet within the Default Dashboard, or by searching through RSA Live by data range since last deployed. Be sure to subscribe to any content for which you want to receive update notifications.
When you view resources in the Matching Resources panel of the Live Content view, there is a column named Updated:
This value is also displayed when you select the detailed view for a resource. Every time a resource changes, its Updated value changes to match the specific update. If you are subscribed to a resource, and it gets updated, your system is automatically updated with the latest version, and you receive a notification. You can view your notifications by clicking the Notification icon, , from anywhere in the RSA NetWitness® Platform UI.
You can also get email notifications when subscribed resources are updated. System Administrators can add email addresses in the ADMIN > SYSTEM > Live Services view. For more information, see the "Live Services Configuration Panel" topic in the System Configuration Guide.

Subscribed resources, if any, are listed in the Deployments tab Subscriptions panel.
The Add Subscription dialog, which lists subscriptions available for deployment, is displayed.

The dialog closes and the subscriptions are added to the listing in the Deployments tab, Subscriptions panel. This stages the resources for deployment at the next synchronization.
- You can click the Synchronize icon, , to immediately synchronize your changes.
When you delete a subscription to a resource, deployed instances of the resource are not deleted. The deployed resource remains on services until explicitly removed, but the resource is no longer synchronized with the resource in NetWitness Platform Live.
To delete a subscription:
- Go to CONFIGURE > Subscriptions.
- In the Subscriptions tab, select the subscriptions you want to delete.
A dialog asks for confirmation that you want to delete the subscription.
To confirm removal, click Yes.
Your selected subscriptions are deleted from the subscriptions list, but any deployed instances of the subscribed resource remain on the services.
Subscriptions that are selected for deployment to a service group are deployed during synchronization. You can remove subscriptions from the Live CONFIGURE > Subscriptions > Deployments panel, but any that have actually been deployed to services remain deployed until someone removes them.
To remove resources from the Deployments tab Subscriptions panel:
- Go to CONFIGURE > Subscriptions > Deployments.
In the Groups panel, select a group.
Subscribed resources, if any, are listed in the Subscriptions panel.
A dialog requests confirmation that you want to delete the resource from the service group. The resource is removed from the Deployments tab Subscriptions panel, but is not removed from services on which it is deployed.
When you subscribe to resources, you will receive notification when new versions of the resources are available.
To subscribe to a resource:
- Go to Live > Search view.
- In the Search Criteria panel, specify search criteria and click Search.
