ESA deployments map rules from your rule library to the appropriate ESA Services and data sources. The Deployment panel (CONFIGURE > ESA Rules > Rules tab) enables you to create and configure ESA deployments that specify:

  • ESA Services
  • ESA Rules

When you are ready to start aggregating data and generating alerts from an ESA deployment, you deploy the ESA deployment to activate it.
