Cortex XSIAM includes an editor for creating Data Model Rules.


Only a user with Cortex Account Administrator or Instance Administrator permissions can access Data Model Rules.

You can override rules or create your own rules using XQL and additional custom syntax that is specific to defining Data Model Rules. Once you edit a default data model mapping, you will no longer receive Marketplace updates. Before you create your own Data Model Rules and override the defaults, we recommend that you review the following information.
