This topic describes how to prepare external data analytics.

To use the external data analytics features, do the following:

  • Configure the Carbon Black App Control Server to send data to a folder for external analytics.
  • Enable one or more Carbon Black App Control Console user accounts with the privileges related to external analytics: View System Configuration, Manage System Configuration, and (to view links to and access external tools from the Carbon Black App Control Console) View External Analytics Reports. See User Role Permissions for more on user privileges.
  • If you plan to link back to the external tool from the Carbon Black App Control Console, make sure that the console users who will be using the analytics integration also have login accounts on the external tool.
  • Configure your analytics tool to consume the output.
