Create a correlation search

A correlation search is a type of search that evaluates events from one or more data sources for defined patterns. When the search finds a pattern, it creates a notable event, adjusts a risk score, or performs an adaptive response action. A correlation search is a saved search with extended capabilities making it easier to create, edit, and use searches for security use cases.

This tutorial is for users who are comfortable with the Splunk Search Processing Language (SPL) and who understand data models and the Splunk App for Common Information Model.

You will learn how to create a correlation search using the guided search creation wizard.
