This topic introduces the Edit Service dialog accessible from the ADMIN Services view (ADMIN > Services).

NetWitness Platform services are automatically discovered in NetWitness Platform.

You can use the Edit Service dialog to modify services. To access the Edit Service dialog, go to ADMIN > Services and click in the Services panel toolbar. 

This is the Edit Service dialog

Procedures related to services are described in Hosts and Services Procedures.


This table describes the features of the Add Service or Edit Service dialogs.

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.
