Tanium Cloud automatically handles module installations and upgrades.
For steps to configure Impact, see Configuring Impact.
Use the Tanium Console Solutions page to install Impact and choose either automatic or manual configuration:
- Automatic configuration with default settings: Impact is installed with any required dependencies and other selected products. After installation, the Tanium Server automatically configures the recommended default settings. This option is the best practice for most deployments. For more information about the automatic configuration for Impact, see Import Impact with default settings.
- Manual configuration with custom settings: After installing Impact, you must manually configure required settings. Select this option only if Impact requires settings that differ from the recommended default settings. For more information, see Import Impact with custom settings.
Before you begin
- Read the release notes.
- Review the Impact requirements.
- If you are upgrading from a previous version, see Upgrade Impact
- Assign the correct roles to users for Impact. Review the User role requirements.
- To import the Impact solution, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role.
- To configure the Impact action group, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role, Content Administrator reserved role, or a role that has the Write Action Group permission.
Import Impact with default settings
When you import Impact with automatic configuration, the following default settings are configured:
The following default setting is configured:
To import Impact and configure default settings, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import all modules and services. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Impact version.
Import Impact with custom settings
To import Impact without automatically configuring default settings, be sure to clear the Apply All Tanium recommended configurations check box while performing the steps in Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Impact version.
To configure the Impact action group, see (Optional) Configure the Impact action group.
To configure synchronization settings, see Configure synchronization settings.
To manually collect and analyze data or view the last time that data was collected and analyzed, see Collect and analyze data.
Data is automatically synchronized between endpoints, all configured domains, and Impact every 24 hours.
Manage solution dependencies
Other Tanium solutions are required for Impact to function (required dependencies) or for specific Impact features to work (feature-specific dependencies). See Solution dependencies.
In Impact 2.0 or later, the steps required to configure the service account are no longer necessary due to the adoption of the System User Service, which performs these tasks automatically. Additionally, the Impact database is migrated to RDB in this release. Consequently, after upgrading to Impact 2.0 or later, it might take time for the database migration to complete and for RBAC privileges and other updates to sync properly. This migration could lead to issues and error messages when you first query the Tanium Console. These issues should resolve on their own after a few minutes, but could take up to an hour or longer depending on system resources and the amount of data to migrate.
For the steps to upgrade Impact, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions. After the upgrade, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Impact version.
