Web browser requirements

Use one of the following supported browsers to access the Tanium Console:

  • Google Chrome (recent)
  • Internet Explorer 11 and later
  • Mozilla Firefox (recent)
  • Safari (recent)

The Tanium Console is designed for a display resolution of at least 1280 pixels wide and at least 720 pixels high. The Tanium Console might not appear as designed in browser windows smaller than these dimensions.

Update the following Internet Explorer settings if their current configuration interferes with the Tanium Console display:

  • Add the Tanium as a Service (TaaS) instance Tanium Server to the Trusted Sites list in the browser.


  • Ensure the browser is not configured to ignore fonts that the Tanium Console specifies.


Tanium dependencies

The Tanium Console and Interact depend on other Tanium Core Platform components:

Component Requirement
Tanium Core Platform Interact 2.0 or later requires Tanium Core Platform 7.2 or later.

Interact 2.1 and Interact 2.2 require Tanium Core Platform 7.4 or later.

You can update both Interact and the Tanium Console UI version independently from the Tanium Core Platform. For details, see Managing Tanium solutions.
Tanium content The Interact module does not include content. However, Interact functionality depends on sensors, saved questions, dashboards, and categories that derive from you import when installing Tanium content packs and other Tanium modules.
License The license entitlement for the Tanium Core Platform includes the Tanium Console and Interact. For details, see Managing the Tanium license.

Tanium Server computer resource and network requirements

Unlike other modules, Interact is installed on the Tanium Server, not the Tanium Module Server. The Tanium Console is also installed on the Tanium Server. The resource specifications for the Tanium Server include the host computer resource and network requirements for the Tanium Console and Interact. See Tanium as a Service User Guide: Requirements the guide for your deployment for details.

Endpoints

Supported operating systems

Interact supports the same operating systems (OSs) for endpoints that the Tanium Client supports:

  • Windows
  • MacOS 
  • Linux
  • AIX
  • Solaris

For details about support for specific OS versions, see Tanium Client User Guide: Host system requirements.

Disk space requirements

On managed endpoints, Interact requires at least 100 MB of disk space and another 100 MB of cache space for data files. The cache space includes the Tanium Client shard cache and objects such as sensors and logs.

Processor requirements

On managed endpoints, Interact requires at least 10 MB of RAM and accounts for less than 0.5% of idle CPU usage.

Host and network security requirements

Host and network security requirements for the Tanium Core Platform apply to the Tanium Console and Interact. For details, see Tanium Core Platform Deployment Reference Guide: Host system security exceptions.

User role requirements

Before using the Tanium Console or Interact to perform tasks, verify that your user account has the necessary roles and permissions, as listed in the following sections. To configure and assign roles, see Managing roles.
