Install, deploy and configure Cortex XSOAR engines.
You can install engines on all Linux and Windows machines. Although engines are intended for Linux operating systems, they can be used on Windows, but Docker on Windows machines must be configured to run Linux containers. Docker/Podman needs to be installed before installing an engine. If you are using the Shell installer for an engine, Docker/Podman is installed automatically.
Engine Hardware Requirements
If your hard drive is partitioned, we recommend a minimum of 50GB for the
Dev Environment Minimum
8 CPU cores
16 CPU cores
Operating System Requirements
You can deploy a Cortex XSOAR engine on the following operating systems:
18.04, 20.04, 22.04
8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 8.6, 8.7, 8.8, 9.0
Centos 8.x reached End of Life (EOL) on December 31, 2021, and is no longer a supported operating system.
Engine Required URLs
You need to allow the following URLs for Cortex XSOAR engines to operate properly.
The endpoint URL is:
Engine Installation Types
Cortex XSOAR supports the following file types for installation on the engine machine:
Shell: For all Linux deployments, such as Ubuntu, SUSE, etc., except CentOS 7.x. Installs Docker/Podman automatically, downloads Docker/Podman images, enables remote engine upgrade, and allows installation of multiple engines on the same machine.
The installation file is selected for you. Shell installation supports the purge flag, which by default is false.
When upgrading a Shell type engine, you can use the Upgrade Engine feature in the Engines page. For CentOS 7 or Amazon Linux 2 type engines, you need to upgrade these engine types using a zip type engine and not use the Upgrade Engine feature.
If you use the Shell installer, Docker/Podman is automatically installed. We recommend using Linux and not Windows to be able to use the Shell Installer which installs all dependencies.
DEB: For Ubuntu operating systems.
RPM: RHEL operating systems.
Use DEB and RPM installation when shell installation is not available. You need to install Docker or Podman and any dependencies. If installing on CentOS v7 you need to install Mirantis Container Runtime (formerly Docker Engine - Enterprise) or Red Hat's Docker distribution to run specific Docker dependent integrations and scripts.
Zip: Used for Windows and CentOS 7 machines.
Configuration: Configuration file for download. When you install one of the other options, this config file (d1.conf) is installed on the engine machine.
For DEB/RPM and Windows engines, Python (including 3.x) and containerization platform (Docker/Podman) must be installed and configured. For Docker or Podman to work correctly on an engine, IPv4 forwarding must be enabled.
