The Services Config view > Data Sources tab of an ESA service enables you to configure the sources that ESA uses to analyze data. An ESA service ingests data from Concentrators to detect incidents and alert analysts to potential threats.


This workflow shows the overall process for configuring ESA. It also shows where configuring data sources is located in the process.

Shows the ESA Configuration Workflow and shows where you are in the process: Configure Data Sources

ESA has two services, the Event Stream Analysis service (ESA Correlation Rules) and the Event Stream Analytics Server service (ESA Analytics). The first four procedures shown pertain to configuring the Event Stream Analysis service:

  • Add Data Source to ESA Service *
  • Configure Notifications
  • Download Live Content
  • (Optional) Configure Advanced Settings

The last procedure is separate from the others and pertains to creating mappings for the ESA Analytics services to start automatically detecting advanced threats:

  • (Optional) Create and Deploy ESA Analytics Mappings
