Get started with the Elasticsearch - Incident Enrichment integration

Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine that easily integrates with Security Operations. Before you can use the Elasticsearch - Incident Enrichment integration, you must activate the plugin and add the appropriate API Base URL and login credentials.

Before you begin

Role required: admin
Important: If you have upgraded your instance from an earlier version, but prior to configuring the Elasticsearch Incident Enrichment integration, please contact ServiceNow support to manually activate the Core Automation API (com.snc.core.automation.api) plugin before attempting to configure this integration. The configuration will not function properly if this action is not taken.
Note: This procedure can be used to activate the plugin and configure the integration. You can also activate the plugin using the traditional method. If you activate the plugin using the traditional method, the Elasticsearch - Incident Enrichment integration recognizes the installation and the integration card displays the New button. Proceed to step 6.


  1. Access Elasticsearch and obtain the API Base URL under your Elasticsearch profile.
  2. Navigate to Security Operations > Integrations > Integration Configurations.
    The available security integrations appear as a series of cards.
