Installing the App

 

Use the QRadar Assistant app to install the app archive on your QRadar computer.

Before you install the app, ensure that the app meets the minimum memory (RAM) requirements. The app requires ∫100 MB of free memory from the application pool of memory. If the app fails to install, then your application pool does not have enough free memory to run the app. Consider adding an App Node or an App Host to your QRadar deployment.

QRadar 7.3.0 and 7.3.1 use an App Node, which is an unmanaged host, that is dedicated to running apps. Provision an App Node to provide extra storage, memory, and CPU resources for your apps without impacting the processing capacity of your QRadar Console.

QRadar 7.3.2 uses an App Host, which is a managed host, that is dedicated to running apps. App Hosts provide extra storage, memory, and CPU resources for your apps without impacting the processing capacity of your QRadar Console. For more information, see Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.

  1. Choose one of the following methods to download your app:
    • If the QRadar Assistant app is configured on QRadar, use the instructions from QRadar Assistant App Guide to install the app.

    • If the QRadar Assistant app is not configured, download the app archive from the IBM Security App Exchange onto your local computer. You must have an IBM ID to access the App Exchange.

  2. If you downloaded the app from the App Exchange, complete the following steps:
    1. On the QRadar Console, click Admin >Extensions Management.

    3. Select the Install immediately check box.

      Note

      You might have to wait several minutes before your app becomes active.

    4. To preview the contents of an app after it is added and before it is installed, select it from the list of extensions, and click More Details. Expand the folders to view the individual content items in each group.

When the installation is complete, if you have Admin > System Administrator assigned to your User Role, a QRadar Log Source Management subsection appears in the Apps section on the Admin tab.

If you have Delegated Administration > Manage Log Sources assigned to your User Role, a system administrator must add the QRadar Log Source Management capability to your user role.

When the installation is complete, clear your browser cache and refresh the browser window before you use the app.
