Getting started with Interact

Perform the following tasks to set up and use Interact:

  1. Review the system, network, security, and user role requirements: see Requirements.
  2. Log into the Tanium Console: see Tanium Console User Guide: Log into and out of the Tanium Console.
  3. Install Interact: see Tanium Console User Guide: Manage Tanium modules.

    For Interact 2.0 or earlier, the Tanium Server installs Interact automatically if your Tanium license is in the Tanium Server installation directory when you first log into the Tanium Console.

  4. (Optional) Customize the Interact Home page: see Customize Tanium module home pages.
  5. (Optional) Configure the Tanium Server to automatically collect results for specific sensors so that you can see those results for endpoints that are offline when you issue questions: see Manage sensor results collection.
  6. Issue dynamic questions to retrieve information about the endpoints in your network: see Asking questions .
  7. Analyze and manage question results. For example, you can drill down into the question results with additional questions, filter the Question Results grid, and export its content: see Managing question results.
  8. Deploy ad-hoc actions or schedule recurring actions based on question results: see Deploying actions.
  9. Manage saved questions. For example, you can create saved questions, assign them to dashboards, assign the dashboards to categories, and assign saved questions to content sets based on RBAC requirements. See Managing saved questions.
