You administer the services and services groups that are available to RSA Security Analytics modules in the Services view. You can run one or more services on a host. Each service maps to a host and performs various ongoing tasks.

You can administer the following Security Analytics services:

  • Archiver
  • Broker
  • Concentrator
  • Context Hub
  • Decoder
  • Event Stream Analysis
  • Incident Management
  • IPDB Extractor
  • Log Collector
  • Log Decoder
  • Malware Analysis
  • Reporting Engine
  • Warehouse Connector
  • Workbench

In the Services view, you can:

  • Quickly search for and locate a specific service or type of service, such as Log Decoder or Warehouse Connector
  • Use shortcuts to get to administration tasks
  • Add, edit, and remove services
  • Manage licensing and view the license status of a service (licensed or unlicensed)
  • Sort Services by Name and Host
  • Filter services by Type and by Name and Host
  • Start, stop, and restart services

You can access the host where a service is running by clicking the link in the Host column for that service.

To access the Administration Services view, from any Security Analytics module, in the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.


You can also view the services from the Default Dashboard in the Available Services section.

Procedures related to services are described in Step 2. Add a Service to a Host, Step 4. Manage Access to a Service, and Service Procedures.


The Services View has two panels:

  • Services panel
  • Groups panel

Services Panel

In the Services panel, you can access different views into a service, and perform service operations such as adding, removing, editing, and administering. The Services panel consists of a grid populated with the list of defined Security Analytics services and the Services Panel Toolbar

This table describes the columns in the grid.

Checkbox.PNG Selects a row for an action in the toolbar. Clicking the checkbox in the column title selects or deselects all rows in the grid.
<Blank>Indicates whether the service is started (capturing or aggregating data) or stopped. A solid colored green circle indicates that a connected service is started. A blank white circle indicates that a connected service is stopped.
NameThe name of the service.
LicensedIndicates whether the service is licensed. A checked circle is licensed and an empty circle is not licensed. 
HostThe name of the host where the service is located. 
TypeThe type of service. Currently service types are Archiver, Broker, Concentrator, Decoder, Event Stream Analysis, Incident Management, IPDB Extractor, Log Collector, Log Decoder, Malware Analysis, Reporting Engine, Warehouse Connector, and Workbench.
VersionThe version of software of the service.
ActionsProvides an Actions menu 104Actions.png for the selected service with actions that can be taken on the service and the associated host. The Actions menu enables you to delete the service, edit the service, and start, stop, and restart the service. A dialog requests confirmation before restarting.

The View submenu from the Actions menu enables you to access the System, Stats, Config, Explore, Logs, and Security views for the selected service. 

Groups Panel

The Groups panel provides a way to create logical groups of services. Once services are grouped, it is easier to perform operations on multiple services by interacting with each service in a group rather than individual services from an ungrouped list. In Security Analytics Live, groups can subscribe to resources while individual services can not.

The Groups panel consists of a grid populated with a list of defined services groups and the Groups Panel Toolbar. This table describes the columns in the grid.

NameThe name of the services group. Clicking the group name in the Groups panel lists the services in that group on the Services panel.
<Blank>Indicates the number of services in the group. Clicking the number of services in the group on Groups panel lists the services in that group on the Services panel.
