Exporting audit data
Events and alerts generated by the engine are sent to Connect. By configuring a Connect destination, this information is actionable outside of Tanium.
To configure a Connect destination:
From the Connect menu, click Connections and then click Create Connection.
Select Event as the source.
Select Tanium Threat Response as the event group and Select All Events.
Configure a Destination. Some destinations use specific destination names. When you edit a named destination, the changes affect all connections where that specific Destination Name is used.
Add a Regular Expression filter for the Event Name column. Regular expressions can vary, however an expression such as ^(?!detect.match).*$ is a good starting point as it removes Detect Alerts but includes all System Notifications.
The following events are sent to Connect:
|Engine events||Action type|
You can also audit actions that were performed in the Threat Response service by users. Export data from Threat Response to Tanium Connect destinations, such as Email, File, HTTP, Socket Receiver, Splunk, and SQL Server, to gain visibility into Threat Response actions that users have performed during a specific time range.
You can audit the following Threat Response actions:
|Threat Response component||Action type|
|Threat Response Settings (With the exception of engine or recorder specific settings)||
|Live Endpoint Connections||
|Live Response Collections||
|Live Response Destinations||
|Live Response File Collectors||
|Live Response Script Sets||
|Live Response Packages||
To export data from Threat Response to Connect destinations such as Email, File, HTTP, Socket Receiver, Splunk, and SQL Server, create a connection.
