The EndpointsAll Endpoints page provides a central location from which you can view and manage the endpoints on which the agent is installed.

To ensure the All Endpoints table is displaying the most useful list of endpoints, you can perform a one-time or periodic cleanup of duplicated entities of the same endpoint from the table. After the cleanup, duplicated entities are removed leaving only one endpoint entry - the last endpoint to connect with the server. Deleted endpoint data is retained for 90 days from the last connection timestamp. If a deleted endpoint reconnects, Cortex XDR recovers and redisplays the endpoint’s existing data.

Navigate to SettingsConfigurationsGeneralAgent ConfigurationsEndpoint Administration Cleanup. Enable the Periodic duplicate cleanup and select to either run one-time cleanup or define to run according to the Host Name, Host IP Address, and/or MAC Address fields every 6 hours, 12 hours, 1 day, or 7 days.

To investigate a single endpoint, right click it, select Endpoint Data , and open the Asset view.

Auto Upgrade Status

When Agent Auto Upgrades are enabled, indicates the action status is either:

  • In progress—Indicates that the agent upgrade is in progress on the endpoint.

  • Up to date—Indicates that the current agent version on the endpoint is up to date.

  • Failure—Indicates that the agent upgrade failed after three retries.

  • Not configured—Indicates that automatic agent upgrades are not configured for this endpoint.

  • Pending—Indicates that the agent version running on the endpoint is not up to date, and the agent is waiting for the upgrade message from Cortex XDR.

  • Not supported—Indicates this endpoint type does not support automatic agent upgrades. Relevant for VDI, TS, or Android endpoints.

To include or exclude one or more endpoints from auto upgrade, right-click and select Endpoint Controlinclude/exlude endpoints from auto upgrade


After an endpoint is excluded, the Auto upgrade profile configuration will no longer be available.

If you exclude the endpoint from Auto Upgrade while the Auto Upgrade Status is In progress status, the ongoing upgrade will still take place.

Cloud Info

Displays IBM and Alibaba Cloud metadata reported by the endpoint.

Content Auto Update

Indicates whether automatic content updates are Enabled or Disabled for the endpoint. See Agent Settings profile.

Content Release Timestamp

Displays the time and date of when the current content version was released.

Content Rollout Delay (days)

If you configured delayed content rollout, the number of days for delay is displayed here. See Agent Settings profile.

Content Status

Displays the status of the content version on the relevant endpoint. The Cortex XDR tenant attempts to contact an endpoint and check the content version over a 7 day period. After this period the tenant displays one of the following statuses:

  • Up to Date - The endpoint is running with the latest content version

  • Waiting for Update - Cortex XDR is in the process of updating the new content version. Depending on your bandwidth and network connection, updating the content version may take time.

  • Outdated - The endpoint is running on an outdated content version.

  • Offline - The endpoint is disconnected.


Content Status is calculated every 30 minutes, therefore, there could be a delay of up to 30 minutes in displaying the data.

Content Version

Content update version used with the agent.

Disabled Capabilities

A list of the capabilities that were disabled on the endpoint. To disable one or more capabilities, right-click the endpoint name and select Endpoint ControlDisable Capabilities. Options are:

  • Live Terminal

  • Script Execution

  • File Retrieval

You can disable these capabilities during the agent installation on the endpoint or through Endpoint Administration. Disabling any of these actions is irreversible, so if you later want to enable the action on the endpoint, you must uninstall the agent and install a new package on the endpoint.


Domain or workgroup to which the endpoint belongs, if applicable.


Only supported for Windows and macOS.

Endpoint Alias

If you assigned an alias to represent the endpoint in Cortex XDR, the alias is displayed here. To set an endpoint alias, right-click the endpoint name, and select Change endpoint alias. The alias can contain any of the following characters: special_char.png

Endpoint ID

Unique ID assigned by Cortex XDR that identifies the endpoint.

Endpoint Isolated

Isolation status, either:

  • Isolated—The endpoint has been isolated from the network with communication permitted to only Cortex XDR and to any IP addresses and processes included in the allow list.

  • Pending Isolation—The isolation action has reached the server and is pending contact with the endpoint.

  • Pending Isolation Cancellation—The cancel isolation action has reached the server and is pending contact with the endpoint.
