The Security Analytics Workbench service enables you to create collections with restored data from Archiver offline (cold) storage.

This procedure is only required if you do not have the Workbench service installed.


Make sure you have added an Archiver host and applied a license to it.


Note: This procedure is only required if you do not have the Workbench service installed.

Perform the following steps to add the Workbench service:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
  2. In the Services panel, select   >Workbench
    The Add Service dialog is displayed, as shown below.
  3. Provide the following details.                    
    HostSelect an Archiver host.
    NameType a name for the service.
    PortDefault port is 50007
    SSLSelect SSL if you want Security Analytics to communicate with the service using SSL. The security of data transmission is managed by encrypting information and providing authentication with SSL certificates.

    Note: If you select SSL, ensure SSL is enabled in the System Configuration panel.

    Username(Optional) Type the username for the service.
    Password(Optional) Type the password for the service.
  4. Click Test Connection to determine if Security Analytics connects to the service.
  5. When the result is successful, click Save.
    The added service is now displayed in the Services panel.

Note: If the test is unsuccessful, edit the service information and retry.
