Normalize alerts with correlation search templates in ITSI
IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) ships with several predefined correlation search templates to help you normalize alerts from common third-party systems. Leverage these searches when creating a correlation search to bring third-party alerts into ITSI and normalize them as notable events. For more information about correlation searches, see Overview of correlation searches in ITSI.
|ITSI role||You must have the write_itsi_correlation_search capability to create a correlation search. The itoa_admin and itoa_team_admin ITSI roles have this capabilities by default.|
|Ingest third-party data||You must be ingesting data from the corresponding third-party alerting system into Splunk Enterprise in order to normalize it in ITSI. Optionally, you can install the related Splunk add-on for that system. The table below lists the add-ons related to each search, if available.|
Access correlation search templates
All third-party search templates are available within the correlation search creation workflow. To leverage a template, perform the following steps:
- From the ITSI main menu, click Configuration > Correlation Searches.
- Click Create New Search > Create Correlation Search.
- Provide a name and description for the search.
- For Search Type, choose Predefined.
- Click Select a Search and choose from one of the predefined search templates described below.
- Click Select an index and choose an index to use for the search.
- Configure the rest of the correlation search to normalize the third-party alert fields. For instructions, see Ingest third-party alerts into ITSI.
