This topic introduces the Add Service or Edit Service dialogs accessible from the ADMIN Services view (ADMIN > Services).
NetWitness Suite services are automatically discovered in NetWitness Suite. You can manually add a service using the Add Service dialog to make services available to NetWitness Suite modules.
You can use the Edit Service dialog to modify services. The Edit Service dialog is similar to the Add Service dialog. To access the Edit Service dialog, go to ADMIN > Services and select Edit () in the Services panel toolbar.
Procedures related to services are described in Hosts and Services Procedures.
This table describes the features of the Add Service or Edit Service dialogs.
|Field or Option||Description|
|Service||Displays the service type. You can add the following services: Archiver, Broker, Concentrator, Decoder, Event Stream Analysis, Incident Management, Log Collector, Log Decoder, Malware Analysis, Reporting Engine, Warehouse Connector, and Workbench.|
|Host||Specifies the host on which the service resides.|
|Name||Specifies the name used to identify the service; for example, Broker. An understandable naming convention can make administrative tasks easier. Some administrators find it convenient to use the hostname or IP address (specified in the Host field) for the Name as well.|
|Port||Specifies the port used to communicate with this service. The default port based on the selected service type in the Service field is autofilled here. If you select SSL below, this port becomes an SSL port. If you do not select SSL, it becomes a non-SSL port. You can customize this port by opening a firewall for the port that you add. For information on ports, see the Network Architecture and Ports topic in the Deployment Guide.|
|SSL||Indicates that NetWitness Suite uses SSL for communications with this service.|
|Username||Specifies the user name used to log in to this service. The default username is admin.|
|Password||Specifies the password used to log in to this service. The default password is netwitness.|
|Entitle Service||(Optional) Assigns licenses from the local license server (LLS) to selected services. For more information, see the View Current Entitlements topic in the Licensing Guide.|
|Test Connection||Clicking this button tests the connection of a service that you are adding.|
|Save||Clicking this button saves the new service.|
|Cancel||Clicking this button closes the Add Service or Edit Service dialog. If you do not save the service before closing the dialog, the service is not added or edited.|
