Job Definition View

Note: Warehouse Analytics is not supported in Netwitness Suite 11.0 or later.

In the Job Definition view you can create and manage new jobs. You must first import the Warehouse Analytics models from the RSA Live and define and schedule jobs for generating reports. You can include whitelists in Warehouse Analytics jobs to ignore non-suspicious domains while processing data for reports.


This workflow is overview of the entire procedure to access Warehouse data and generate reports for analyzing and investigating indicators of compromise (IOC).
