If you have created a package of resources and saved it on a network drive, you can use the Resource Package Deployment Wizard to deploy the resources manually to a service or a service group without subscribing to the resources. NetWitness Platform accepts packages in .nwp files or .zip files.

Deploying resources manually deploys them directly to the services without taking advantage of the powerful resource management capabilities of NetWitness Platform.

If you want to receive notification and updates for updated resources and be able to easily remove resources from a service, you must subscribe to resources in the Live Search view and deploy the resources in the Live Configure view.

Note: Use NetWitness Platform Live to create resource bundles; this is a different application that is not part of NetWitness Platform. Selecting Package > Create in the Live Search - Matching Resources toolbar displays the Content Package Tool window. You can choose resources to include in a package and save the package as a NetWitness Platform Package File.

The required permission to access this view is Deploy Live Resources.

To access this view:

  1. Go to CONFIGURE > Live Content.
  2. In the Live Search - Matching Resources toolbar, select > Deploy.

    The Resource Package Deployment wizard is displayed.

When you complete the wizard, NetWitness Platform returns to the Live Resources View.
