SA-ThreatIntelligence `notable` macro is inactive

With the `notable` macro from SA-ThreatIntelligence, the Threat Intelligence Supporting Add-on (SA), you can create a notable event in Splunk Enterprise Security and its respective incident in Splunk Mission Control. In a Splunk Enterprise Security search head environment, the `notable` macro from SA-ThreatIntelligence is active by default, but users can activate or deactivate the macro through the Splunk Web menu.

The `notable` macro from SA-ThreatIntelligence is not the same as the `notable` macro from DA-ESS-ContentUpdate, the Splunk Enterprise Security Domain Add-on.

If the `notable` macro from SA-ThreatIntelligence is inactive, you can reactivate it by following these steps:

  1. In the Splunk Web menu, select Settings and then Advanced search.
  2. Select Search macros.
  3. Using the drop-down list, select SA-ThreatIntelligence for the App.
  4. Locate the notable search macro in the table. You can filter the table results using the search bar.
  5. For the notable search macro, select Enable.
