    The following table is a non-exhaustive list of the most common feed integration parameters. Each feed integration may have parameters unique to that integration. Read the documentation for specific feed integrations for more details.



    Fetches indicators

    Select this option for the integration instance to fetch indicators.

    Some integrations can fetch indicators or incidents. Select the relevant option for what you need to fetch in the instance.


    The URL of the feed.

    Feed Fetch Interval

    When the integration instance should fetch indicators from the feed.

    Indicator verdict

    The indicator verdict that will apply to all indicators fetched from this integration instance. See Indicator verdict.

    Source reliability

    The reliability of the source that provides the threat intelligence data.

    Indicator Expiration Method

    The method by which to expire indicators from this integration instance. The default expiration method is the interval configured for the indicator type to which this indicator belongs.

    • Time Interval: Expires indicators from this instance after the specified time interval, in days or hours.

    • Never Expire: Indicators from this instance never expire.

    • When removed from the feed: When the indicators are removed from the feed they are expired in the system.

    Bypass exclusion list

    Trust any certificate (not secure)

    When selected, certificates are not checked.

    Use system proxy settings

    Runs the integration instance using the proxy server (HTTP or HTTPS) when an engine is selected.
