Installing Interact

If your Tanium license is in the Tanium Server installation directory when you first open the Tanium Console, the server installs Interact automatically. Otherwise, you can install Interact from the Tanium Solutions page in the same way you install other Tanium solution modules.

Before you begin

  • You must have the Administrator reserved role to import or uninstall solution modules, including Interact.
  • Read the release notes.

Import Interact

  1. Go to Tanium Solutions.
  2. In the Interact tile, click Import <version>.
  3. Review the manifest of import objects and click Import.
  4. When prompted to confirm, enter your password.

The installation process for each module writes its workbench configuration to files on the Tanium Server host. In a high availability (HA) deployment, you must import the module on all Tanium Servers in the HA cluster for the workbench to be available in all Tanium Console instances. However, solution content (such as saved questions and packages) is written to the shared database, so it is available to all console instances after you import it on any Tanium Server.

Upgrade Interact

The Tanium Console periodically checks content.tanium.com for updates. If updates are available, an Upgrade button appears on the Interact card on the Tanium Solutions page.

  1. From the Main Menu, select Tanium Solutions.
  2. Under Interact, click the Upgrade button.
  3. Review the manifest of import objects and click Upgrade.
  4. When prompted to confirm, enter your password.

When you upgrade a solution module, upgrades to the solution workbench configuration is written to files that reside on the host computer. In an HA deployment, you must import the solution on both nodes for the solution workbench to be available in both Tanium Console instances. Solution content, such as saved questions and packages, however, is written to the shared database, so it is available to both instances at once.
