Create a case from IoCs or observables

In Threat Intelligence, you can create a case from artifacts (IoCs or observables). After the IoCs or observables have been used to create a case, you can use Security Case Management to analyze the data.

Before you begin

The Threat Intelligence plugin must be activated to use Security Case Management.

Role required: sn_ti.case_user_write


  1. Navigate to the artifacts (IoCs or observables) you want to use to create a case.
    • To create a case from IoCs, navigate to Threat Intelligence > IoC Repository > Indicators.
    • To create a case from observables, navigate to Threat Intelligence > IoC Repository > Observables.
  2. In the list, select the artifacts you want added to a new case.
    Note: If you select multiple IoCs or observables, they are all added to the case.
  3. From the Actions on selected items drop-down list, select Add to Security Case.
    Add indicators to a new case
    The Add to Security Case dialog box opens. If you already have cases assigned to you, they display in the list.
