About Orchestration Rules

USM Anywhere allows you to create and manage your own orchestration rules. Keep in mind that these rules verify whether they match with every new eventAny traffic or data exchange detected by AlienVault products through a Sensor, or through external devices such as a firewall. coming into the system.

USM Anywhere includes the following orchestration rules

Note: USM Anywhere follows a specific order for applying orchestration rules. See Orchestration Rules Workflow for further information.

Note: Keep in mind that the order of the conditions is significant and USM Anywhere follows a specific order in the rules conditions; they are read from left to right. In addition, if your rule includes the packet_type and plugin_device fields they should always go first and in that order.

You can also create orchestration rules from the details of an event or alarm. The functionality works the same way and the popup window is similar when you are creating a rule either from a detail page of an event or alarm or from the settings page.

Important: The easiest way to configure an orchestration rule is from the Alarm and from the Events details pages. see Creating Notification Rules from the Alarms Page, Creating Alarm Rules from the Events page, and Creating Notification Rules from the Events Page for further information.

If you want to see an example of an orchestration rule, see Example: Creating an Orchestration Rule.
