Install a content pack

You can only install one content pack at a time. Cortex XSIAM automatically adds any content that is required to install the content pack. You can also add any optional content packs that use the content pack you want to install.

If you receive an error message when you try to install a content pack, you need to fix the error before installing. If a warning message is issued, you can still download the content pack, but you should fix the problem otherwise the content may not work correctly.

Before you install a content pack you should review the content pack to see what it includes and what are the various dependencies. Following is the information you can view:

  • Details: General information about the content pack such as installation, content, version, author, and status.

  • Content: The content to be installed, such as scripts or integrations.

  • Dependencies: Details of any required content packs and optional content packs that may need to be installed with your content pack.

  • Version History: View the currently installed version, earlier versions, available updates, and revert if required.

If you want to install data sources you can do one the following:

  • Go to the Data Sources page and add a data source by configuring an integration in the Data Sources page. Once configured, it automatically installs the required content packs, and recommends additional beneficial content such as playbooks and dashboards that are relevant for this specific data source.

  • In Marketplace, select either Data Onboarder (which takes you to the integration configuration in the Data Sources page) or install the content pack directly from Marketplace. If installing the content pack from Marketplace, you will then have to configure the integration in the Automation & Feed Integrations page.


Currently, not all content packs are supported in the Data Sources page. For example, content packs with several integrations are not yet supported.
