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.
The required permission to access this view is Deploy Live Resources.
To access this view:
- Go to (Configure) > Live Content.
The Resource Package Deployment wizard is displayed.
The Deployment Wizard has five tabs: Package, Resources, Services, Review and Deploy.
Use Close to exit before you complete the wizard.
When you complete the wizard, NetWitness Platform returns to the Live Resources View.
You use this tab to select a resource bundle from your network in this page.
This is an example of the Package tab, with a resource bundle already selected.
The following table describes the elements in the Package tab.
This button opens a File Upload dialog in which you can browse the local file system and select a bundle.
Cancels the deployment and closes the wizard.
Displays the next tab of the wizard.
This tab displays the resources contained in the bundle.
The following figure shows an example of the Resources tab.
The following table describes elements in the Resources tab.
|Resource Name||Displays the name of the resources in the bundle (for example, NetWitness Lua Library).|
|Resource Type||Displays the resource types for the resources in the bundle (for example, RSA Lua Parser)|
|Dependency Of||Displays Resources on which the selected resource depends (for example, AIM lua).|
You select the services on which you want to deploy the resources in the bundle.
The Services tab has two tabs, Services and Groups. These provide a list of services and service groups that are configured in the (Admin) > Services view. The columns are a subset of the columns available in the Services view. You can select the services or the service groups on which you want to deploy the resources in the bundle.
This is an example of the Services tab.
The following table describes the elements in the Services tab.
Displays the resources and services on which the resources will be deployed.
In this tab, you can do the following:
- Review the content and services before you deploy.
- Initiate the deployment of the resources.
The following figure shows an example of the Review tab.
The following table describes the elements in the Review tab.
|Service||Displays the services in your environment on which you can deploy the content.|
|Service Type||Displays the type of each NetWitness Platform service (type of host or service).|
|Resource Name||Displays the name of the resources you have selected (for example, NetWitness Lua Library).|
|Resource Type||Displays the resource types for the resources you have selected (for example, RSA Lua Parser).|
|Deploy||Initiates the deployment of the resources and displays the Deploy page (final page of the wizard).|
