Configuring IBM Sense to Communicate with JSA

The User Behavior Analytics (UBA) app uses the IBM Sense DSM to add user risk scores and offenses into JSA. When the app is installed, an IBM Sense log source is automatically created and configured by the app. No user input or configuration is required.
